Oracle Contributes XQilla XQuery Engine Under Open Source Apache License

Oracle Continues to Provide Choice, Flexibility and Lower-Cost Computing to Developers

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., March 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

-- Oracle today contributed the XQilla XQuery engine code, an embeddable XQuery engine for developers building XML-based applications, under the open source Apache 2.0 license. -- By making XQilla XQuery engine available to developers under the Apache license, Oracle is furthering the adoption of XQuery and XML for application areas including Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Content Management. -- The XQilla XQuery engine, an implementation of the XQuery 1.0 standard published by the W3C, enables developers to query XML data, similar to SQL for relational data. -- Developers can use the XQilla XQuery engine in commercial and open source applications at no cost, modify and improve it, as well as distribute it in binary and source code form. -- The XQilla project is hosted on SourceForge, where an active community collaborates to further the technology. -- For applications requiring XQuery and an XML document repository, Oracle has also integrated XQilla XQuery engine within Oracle Berkeley DB XML, an embeddable, open source XML database. (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20020718/ORCLLOGO) Supporting Quotes -- "Oracle has a long-standing commitment to the open source community and continues to actively contribute to, enhance, and support open source software," said Monica Kumar, senior director Linux and Open Source Product Marketing, Oracle. "Through collaboration with other organizations to enhance code like XQilla, Oracle is embracing and offering open source solutions as a viable choice for development and deployment across the platforms and applications that support our customers' businesses." -- "XQuery will play an increasingly important role in the future of information processing," said Dana Florescu, Oracle Architect, and co- author of the XQuery specification. "A commercial-grade XQuery processor broadly available for use by developers is an important enabler in the next generation of XML applications." -- "Oracle is a supporter of the W3C in general and XQuery in particular," said Jim Melton, consulting member of technical staff, Oracle and co- chair of W3C XML Query Working Group. "XQilla has a reputation as a very high quality XQuery engine. Its developers respond quickly to changes in the specifications, providing essential implementation feedback into the process of developing the Recommendations. Through their efforts, the quality of XQuery and related specifications has been greatly improved." -- "Through joint collaboration with Oracle we were able to build a robust XQuery engine that benefits the community of XML application developers," said Philip Allen, Chairman, DecisionSoft. "Projects like this demonstrate the power of collective thinking and the value open source projects can bring to the larger developer and open source community."
