ID Name Duration Overview
19511 XQuery 14 hours This training provides: A high-level overview and quick tour of XQuery Information to write sophisticated queries, without being bogged down by the details of types, namespaces, and schemas Advanced concepts for users who want to take advantage of modularity, namespaces, typing and schemas Guidelines for working with specific types of data, such as numbers, strings, dates, URIs and processing instructions A complete alphabetical reference to the built-in functions and types Participants will also learn about XQuery's support for filtering, sorting, and grouping data, as well as how to use FLWOR expressions, XPath, and XQuery tools for extracting and combining information. During the training they will find out how to apply all of these tools to a wide variety of data sources, and how to recombine information from multiple sources into a single final output result. XQuery Introduction What Is XQuery? Path Expressions FLWOR (for, let, where, order by, return) Functions Joins XQuery Basics The Design of the XQuery Language XQuery in Context Processing Queries The XQuery Data Model Types Namespaces Expressions Categories of Expressions Keywords and Names Whitespace in Queries Literals Variables Function Calls Comments Evaluation Order Comparison Expressions "if-then-else" Expressions "and/or" Expressions Paths Path Expressions Predicates Dynamic Paths Input Documents Context Constructors Including Elements and Attributes from the Input Document Direct Constructors Computed Constructors Selecting and Joining Using FLWORs Selecting with Path Expressions FLWOR Expressions Quantified Expressions Selecting Distinct Values Joins Sorting and Grouping Sorting in XQuery Grouping Aggregating Values Functions Built-in Functions User-Defined Functions Advanced Queries Copying Input Elements with Modifications Working with Positions and Sequence Numbers Combining Results Using Intermediate XML Documents XML Namespace XQuery and an Namespace  Namespace Declaration Types The XQuery Type System The Built-in Types Types, Nodes, and Atomic Values Type Checking in XQuery Automatic Type Conversions Sequence Types Constructors and Casting Prolog and Module Structure of a Query: Prolog and Body Assembling Queries from Multiple Modules Variable Declarations Declaring External Functions Using Schemas What Is a Schema?

21083 eXist-db Development and Performance 14 hours The objective is to enable attendees to quickly build applications inXQuery and make them ready for production use. Attendees will learn how to diagnose and resolve performance issues, properly define indexes for best performance, and how to optimise XQuery applications for concurrency. Application development in XQuery We will guide you through a number of concrete application examples to show you how to: Quickly prototype a web application in XQuery Choose an application structure Use the right tools for application development (eXide, oXygen, WebDAV) Use and write function libraries and extension modules Set up indexes, URL rewriting, external resources Package and deploy your application Performance and Optimisation Performance optimisation and making an application production ready: Understanding the basics of query execution and optimisation in eXist-db Characteristics of the different index types and their use Performance analysis, profiling Tuning indexes and database settings Optimising for concurrency You can contribute your own use cases for discussion or as an example which can can be worked through together during the day.
21084 eXist-db Introduction 7 hours Suitable for those requiring an introduction to XML and XQuery with eXist-db and can also be as a pre-training course for the 2 day eXist-db Development and Performance course. Introduction to: XML XPath XQuery XSLT
