Updating the prepost plane in monetdbxquery
The purpose of the panel is to discuss the involvement of researchers from academia and industry in XQuery research work, and to discuss their viewpoint on where these research efforts are going. * What is the existing (early) development feedback ?
Some questions to be asked of the panelists are: * Are (were) you involved in XQuery research ? * Would you orient a Ph D thesis starting in 2005 on an XQuery topic ? Waterloo, Canada) * Divesh Srivastava (AT&T, USA) * What are the features most difficult to implement ? * Should feature sets of XQuery and related standards be limited? ) Our distinguished panelists are: What is the future of XQuery ?
The XIME-P workshop will take place in Baltimore, Maryland (the same place as SIGMOD/PODS).The predictions will be based in part on extrapolating from the XSLT scene.Some of the frustrations experienced by new and not-so-new XSLT users over the last five years will be shared by new and not-so-new XQuery users over the next five years, while others will be different - either because the languages are different, or because the users are different, or because the problems they are trying to solve are different. Will they go for the freedom of the open-source world, or cling to the apron strings of their favorite database vendors?XQuery is getting closer to completing its first standard. This talk attempts to predict the way that users will react to XQuery, once production implementations are available.This is an important milestone, comparable to the SQL86 standard milestone, but the journey is still ahead of us.

What features will they say they like, what complaints will they make?
