Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "VXQueryProposal" by VinayakBorkar
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2009 19:06:38 GMT
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:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/VXQueryProposal

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
project.


== 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 ==

== Initial Source ==

== External Dependencies ==
