Can I still use XQuery and XML with MarkLogic 8?
11 February 2015 01:56 PM


In MarkLogic 8, support for native JSON and server side JavaScript was introduced.  We discuss how this affects the support for XML and XQuery in MarkLogic 8.


In MarkLogic 8, you can absolutely use XML and XQuery. XML and XQuery remain central to MarkLogic Server now and into the future. JavaScript and JSON are complementary to XQuery and XML. In fact, you can even work with XML from JavaScript or JSON from XQuery.  This allows you to mix and match within an application—or even within an individual query—in order to use the best tool for the job.
