Quilt: An XML Query Language

Jonathan Robie, Donald D. Chamberlin, Daniela Florescu


XML is an extremely versatile markup language, capable of labeling the information content of diverse data sources including structured and semi-structured documents, relational databases, and object repositories. A query language of similar versatility is needed to realize the potential of XML as a universal medium for data interchange. Most existing proposals for XML query languages are robust for particular types of data sources but weak for other types. In this paper, the authors combine features from several sources to propose a new query language called Quilt, which is designed to be broadly applicable across all types of XML data sources.
