This article is part of the XQuery Portal.

In addition to the standard XQuery Functions, BaseX comes with hundreds of additional functions, which are packaged in various modules.

The namespaces of the built-in modules are statically bound to their prefix. This means that they need not (but may) be declared in the query prolog.
