XQuery full-text editors-


I've just found the XQueryFT pages, which I think could be very useful
to us at Inxight Software.  Our system does deep linguistic analysis of
text, which can then be queried, so we are looking for a rich query
language for our system.

I have also found a few other full-text query languages:

NISO Z39.50

    http://www.loc.gov/z3950/agency
 
ZING: Z39.50 Next Generation

    http://www.loc.gov/z3950/agency/zing

Java Content Repository API (see Simple Search Engine Syntax):

    http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=170

 ZING especially has some innovative ideas for a query language.

Are you in contact with these folks?  It would sure be nice to see some
of the great ideas in XQueryFT make their way into these other
standards, or vice-versa.

Sincerely,
