The first XQuery component to implement the XQuery API for Java� (XQJ), DataDirect XQuery�, is now available in beta. DataDirect XQuery allows you to query XML, relational databases, or a combination of the two and integrate the results for any XML you need. It does not require any other product or application server, and has no server of its own � making it easily embeddable into your applications. You can use the beta to process XQuery expressions against Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2, directly from within your Java applications. Get started today with XQuery and XQJ using the beta release of DataDirect XQuery. Register and learn more about the beta program at: DataDirect XQuery
