Implementing update extensions to xquery 1.0 [electronic resource] /
Abstract (Summary)ABSTRACT: In recent years, XML has emerged as the de facto standard for processing and exchange of information among heterogeneous systems. For XML to gain universal acceptance as a data representation and sharing format, standard techniques must be developed to query and update data stored as XML. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is in the process of formalizing a query language for XML, called XQuery. But the language currently lacks support for updates. Absence of a standard update language has forced many vendors offering XML data management tools to develop their own proprietary XML modification solutions. Significant research is being carried out to improve XML querying and indexing techniques, but updates have received little attention so far. This thesis deals with techniques to incorporate update extensions into the W3C XQuery standard.
