This project must be done individually. No copying is permitted. The purpose of this project is to learn XQuery.
You will do this project on your own PC/laptop. You will use Qexo, which is a free implementation of XQuery. You need to download the kawa jar file. You can run XQueries from input using:
java -jar kawa-1.9.1.jar --xquerybut in this project you should write the queries in a file. Note that some functions may be missing from Qexo.
The following provide some tutorials. Use them as a reference only.
Consider the following XML document along with its DTD that describes auctions:
auction.zip (the zipped XML document)It contains synthetic data (automatically generated). The words for text paragraphs are taken from Shakespeare's plays. There is also a DTD (the link is not broken; use Save As to save it) for the XML file but it is not very useful. Express the following queries using XQuery and run them against the file auction.xml using Qexo:
Use the form below to submit your XQuery files (or you may zip all XQuery files and submit the zipped file).
