XQuery Development Tools

XQDT provides support for editing, execution, and debugging of XQuery modules in Eclipse. Our goal is to have seamless integration with the Eclipse platform and the existing XQuery engines with 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
