eXist-db is an open source database management system built using XML technology.
eXist-db is an open source database management system built using XML technology. It stores XML data according to the XML data model and features efficient, index-based XQuery processing.
eXist-db supports many (web) technology standards making it an excellent platform for developing web based applications:
* XQuery 1.0 / XPath 2.0 / XSLT 1.0 (using Apache Xalan) or XSLT 2.0 (optional with Saxon)
* HTTP interfaces: REST, WebDAV, SOAP, XMLRPC, Atom Publishing Protocol
* XML database specific: XMLDB, XUpdate, XQuery update extensions (to be aligned with the new XQuery Update Facility 1.0)
The 1.4 version adds a new full text index based on Apache Lucene, a lightweight URL rewriting and MVC framework as well as support for XProc. Most important, the XQuery engine has seen a major redesign, resulting in improved performance.
eXist-db is highly compliant with the XQuery standard (current XQTS score is 99.4%). The query engine is extensible and features a large collection of XQuery Function Modules.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
