Conal is correct, you can pass a sequence of documents to the p:xquery step. The first document will become the initial context item (accessible using ‘.’), the entire sequence will be the default collection (accessible using the collection() function).

Hi Sebastian!
You can have a sequence of input documents, NB the "sequence='true'" in the definition:

 <p:input port="source" sequence="true" primary="true"/>

e.g.
<p:input port="source">
   <p:pipe step="first-document" port="result"/>
   <p:pipe step="second-document" port="result"/>
   <!-- etc -->
</p:input>
Only one set of parameters, though, yes.

According to https://www.w3.org/TR/xproc/#c.xquery p:xquery gets only one input document and parameters (which can only be atomic, right?)

If my query has multiple input documents (from previous steps), do I really have to store them first and load them inside the query?
