Frustrated Database

Someone make an XQuery
(namespace)
IDE plugin for Eclipse. Shit, google just
provided one…

Update: I just realized how horrible the XQuery specification is implemented
in any sort of off-the-shelf packages. We used
QuiP
(Note the use of caP1+Als) for a
CSCI 585:Databases
homework assignment. It sucked, especially since the syntax
we learned in class and documented in the notes was the 04 APR 2005 Specification while
on the QuiP site they have this gem:

“The latest XQuery draft was released in May 2003 and though there have been no substantial changes, the syntax supported by the current QuiP implementation must be considered out of date.”

Pretty sweet when you’re writing software and have to figure out the syntax
by trial-and-error.
