Zorba - a "virtual machine" for query processing(Link)

– Present

The Zorba "virtual machine" can be used to process JSON using JSONiq or XML using XQuery. More than that, Zorba can even be used to combine processing of JSON and XML. Both languages have been designed from the ground up to process semi-structured data for which SQL is not well adapted.

Team members:


XMLBeans is a technology for accessing XML by binding it to Java types. XMLBeans provides several ways to get at the XML, including:
• Through XML schema that has been compiled to generate Java types that represent schema types. In this way, you can access instances of the schema through JavaBeans-style accessors after the fashion of "getFoo" and "setFoo".
• The XMLBeans API also allows you to reflect into the XML schema itself through an XML Schema Object model.
• A cursor model through which you can traverse the full XML infoset.
• Support for XML DOM.
