Not all developers understand the power of XQuery - but more and more are turning to XQuery to help create advanced data integration applications every day. This new tutorial gives XML developers the information on modules and functions they need to take advantage of the full power and flexibility of XQuery. Being able to define your own functions in XQuery can be one of the most useful skills you learn this year. Dr. Michael Kay states, "XQuery functions have a useful function!" Defining your own Functions in XQuery covers the following topics:
- A simple XQuery function example - The function name - XQuery Function arguments - The result type - The function body - Modules and Schemas - Documenting XQuery functions - Using Functions to Mask Schema Complexity - Writing Recursive Queries
