Our XQuery training course will show you how to use this technology in a generic, language context. XQuery implementations are associated with database products, where the tool-specific skills are greater than just the XQuery components. To avoid this the tool used will be an XQuery engine, one of the most popular, open-source XQuery implementations that operates directly on XML documents in filestore.
