xqDoc Conversion Package
The conversion package supports the Jan 2007 W3C XQuery 1.0 Recommendation.
For more information on the conversion package, read the documentation
or review the javadoc. For more information on the types of drivers to create for a vendor's
XQuery implementation, read the driver documentation.
The xqDoc conversion package also has a dependency on the open source package ANTLR.
Visit the ANTLR website to retrieve the most recent version. xqDoc should work with ANTL .jar files beginning with
There are (3) types of drivers available for MarkLogic, a commercial XML database vendor. These
drivers include a driver to process modules stored in a file system, a driver to process modules
stored in the XML database, and a driver to create an offline view of xqDoc XML stored in the
XML database. For more information on how to use these drivers with MarkLogic and to obtain
details on software dependencies, read the MarkLogic quick start guide.
The MarkLogic drivers also have dependencies on the open source packages jdom
and XQRunner. In addition, the proprietary MarkLogic XDBC
associated .jar files (.xdbc, .xdmp, and .xeval) are also required. The following helpful links provide the
location of these .jar files used during xqDoc certification.
There are currently (2) types of drivers available for eXist, an open source XML database. These
drivers include a driver to process modules stored in a file system and a driver to process modules
stored in the XML database. For more information on how to use these drivers with eXist and to obtain
details on software dependencies, read the eXist quick start guide.
There is currently (1) type of driver available for Saxon, an open source XQuery processor. This
driver processes modules stored in a file system and immediately transforms the generated xqDoc XML
to XHTML. For more information on how to use this driver with Saxon and to obtain
details on software dependencies, read the Saxon quick start guide.
