Description: XQuery is a query and functional programming language that is designed to query collections of Extensible Markup Language (XML) data. This specification can be used to extract information and generate reports from data in an XML database and convert XML data to XML HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) for web publication. Additionally, this specification provides syntax allowing new XML documents to be constructed.

XQuery is an extension of XML Path Language (XPath) version 2.0. Any expression that is syntactically valid and executes successfully in both XPath 2.0 and XQuery will return the same result in both languages. Since these languages are so closely related, their grammars and language descriptions are generated from both a common source to ensure consistency, along with editors working with specifications closely together.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
