XQuery Development Tools
XQuery Development Tools (XQDT) is now part of the Web Tools Project Incubator. Our goal is to get out of the egg (a.k.a graduate).
XQDT provides support of XQuery inside Eclipse. Our goal is to have seamless integration with the Eclipse platform and the existing XQuery engines but also to create a user experience consistent with both XQuery and Eclipse standards.
XQDT provides the following features:
- Support for XQuery 1.1 (e.g., try-catch, group by, windowing)
- Support for XQuery Updates and Scripting Extensions (as defined in the public Standard / Working Draft)
- Syntax highlighting
- Code completion and code templates
- Launching and debugging (in progress) XQuery
- As-you-type validation
- Semantic checking
End User (XQuery Developers)
We expect to officially announce a milestone build from eclipse.org imminently, but until we do, the latest released version (XQDT 2.2.0) can be still downloaded from the xqdt.org update site:
Latest developer snapshots can be found on the XQDT build, along with trends and metrics. Both ZIPs and P2 Zipped update site are available for download.
