XQuery is a language for querying XML data and documents that is currently being developed by the W3C. This tutorial covers the basics of XQuery from a technical perspective. It provides attendees with a solid understanding of the syntax and structure of XQuery expressions. Emphasis is on practical examples and hands-on participation from the attendees.
With the XQuery, you finally have a tool that will make it much easier to search, extract and manipulate information from XML content stored in databases. Aspect Training’s XQuery Introduction course not only walks you through the XQuery specification, but also teaches you how to program with this widely anticipated query language.
Aspect Training’s XQuery Introduction course is for query writers who have some knowledge of XML basics, but not necessarily advanced knowledge of XML-related technologies. On this course you will also learn about XQuery's support for filtering, sorting, and grouping data, as well as how to use FLWOR expressions, XPath, and XQuery tools for extracting and combining information.
Aspect Training’s XQuery Introduction course will show you how to apply all of these tools to a wide variety of data sources, and how to recombine information from multiple sources into a single final output result. Whether you're coming from SQL, XSLT, or starting from scratch, this carefully paced course is for you.
A working knowledge of XML is required for this course.
