Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by VinayakBorkar:

New page:
= VXQueryProposal =

== Abstract ==

Apache VXQuery is a language processor that implements the XML Query Language v1.0 standardized
by the W3C.

== Proposal ==

VXQuery (Versatile XQuery) is a standards compliant XML Query processor implemented in Java.
It can be used with alternate representations of XML data.

== Current Status ==

This is a new project.

== Meritocracy ==

The initial developers are very familiar with meritocratic open source
development at Apache. Apache was chosen specifically because the
initial developers want to encourage this style of development for the

== Community ==

VXQuery seeks to develop developer and user communities during incubation.

== Core Developers ==

The core members of the project are diverse.
Vinayak Borkar is an independent consultant. Till Westmann works for a company that would
be a potential consumer of VXQuery.
During incubation the developers base will be broadened.

== Alignment ==

The VXQuery developers want to work with the Apache Software Foundation because Apache has
shown to provide a strong processes and a foundation for developing standards compliant infrastructure
components. XML has been well supported by many projects hosted by the ASF and we believe
that VXQuery will complement that effort.

== Known Risks ==

=== Orphaned products ===

VXQuery is new development.

=== Inexperience with Open Source ===

The initial developers include long-time open source developers.
Vinayak Borkar is an active contributor to the Zorba project at the FLWOR foundation.

== Relationships with Other Apache Products ==

XMLBeans is a representation of XML that would be natively supported in VXQuery. VXQuery uses
the Xerces schema processor.

== A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ==

We believe in the processes, systems, and framework Apache has put in
place. The brand is nice, but is not why we wish to come to Apache.

== Documentation ==

Not publicly available

== Initial Source ==

Not publicly available

== External Dependencies ==

JavaCC, Davos SDO implementation, Xerces XML parser and schema validator, Woodstox XML parser,
XStream project

== Required Resources ==
