Welcome to the Query Portal, which is one of the Main Sections of this documentation. BaseX offers a highly conformant implementation of the W3 XPath and XQuery languages, which are tightly coupled with the underlying database store. This section contains general information on the query processor and its numerous extensions.
- XQuery 3.0: supported features of the upcoming XQuery 3.0 Recommendation
- Full-Text: XPath/XQuery Full Text extends the language with powerful retrieval features.
- Updates: Databases can be modified via the XQuery Update extension
- Java Bindings: described how Java code can be accessed and called from XQuery
- Packaging: allows to embed external function modules, based on the EXPath Packaging System
- Errors: errors raised by XQuery expressions
- Serialization: serialization parameters supported by BaseX
The namespaces of the following XQuery modules are statically bound in BaseX, i.e., they need not (but may) be declared in the query prolog.
