    Using Oracle XQuery from Java Only

    351746
      Hi,
      I am interested to use the Oracle XQuery implementation to run on XML files only - no databases! Is it possible to do? Which jar file I need in JDeveloper to do that?
      Does it support the latest XQuery version?

          Asaha,

          This is not supported in the current release. What are your use cases?

          Regards,

            Our usecase is this :

            1. There would be some BPEL template files in XML with some placeholders for runtime parameters and XQuery FLWR expressions.

            2. At runtime, from Java, we would like to substitute those placeholders by runtime parameter values - would like to use the XQuery Java APIs to do that - see something similar available in Saxon XQuery parser.

            Is it possible from Java using Oracle technology?

            Thanks

              Would the mid-tier Oracle XML Query Service (http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/xml/xds/index.html) meet your needs?

                As Geoff posted , this use case is supported in XML Query Service which is a Pure Java middle tier solution.
                It is also integrated with Oracle BPEL Process manager , that means you can invoke an XQuery within your BPEL process.
                This feature is available in the upcoming version Oracle SOA Suite 10.1.3.1 which is already available as a Developer Preview
