NAME ^

 XML::eXistDB - handle the eXist pure XML database

INHERITANCE ^

 XML::eXistDB
   is a XML::Compile::Cache
   is a XML::Compile::Schema
   is a XML::Compile

SYNOPSIS ^

 # You want to talk to eXist via a protocol. Read that manpage
 use XML::eXistDB::RPC;
 my $db = XML::eXistDB::RPC->new(...);

DESCRIPTION ^

There are many database which support XML and Xquery. Quite a number of them translate XML into tables and Xquery into SQL statements. The eXist database however, is a pure XML/Xquery database. Website: http://exist-db.org

The XML::eXistDB distribution contains the following modules:

. XML::eXistDB focuses on processing eXist (configuration) files
. XML::eXistDB::Util contains convenience functions and constants
. XML::eXistDB::RPC implements the large XML-RPC API to speak to an eXist daemon

The "REST" API for eXist is very different from the XML-RPC API, so there is no chance on a common base-class. The XML-RPC API is probably quite close to the XML:DB standard, but for the moment, no attempts are made to unify the implementation to facilitate different XML databases back-ends.
