Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "VXQueryProposal" by VinayakBorkar

http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/VXQueryProposal

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  VXQuery plans to be the glue that brings together imperative programming in Java and declarative
programming in XQuery. The project would enable developers to use XQuery to navigate and transform
application objects declaratively in Java applications with minimal overhead.
  
  In the VXQuery project we plan to build an implementation that allows users to run declarative
XQueries on arbitrary object models. Existing XQuery engines execute queries by translating
the user data into some form of XML Object model. With VXQuery, we take the opposing view
- Translate the query to work natively on the user's object model.
+ 
+ In addition, VXQuery works on top of different XML representations including DOM, Stax,
and a space optimized model motivated by Xalan's DTM (Document Table Model).
  
  VXQuery will also provide a library that allows application developers to express declarative
queries without the need to learn a new syntax. We believe that this will speed up the adoption
process.
