Tag: XSQL

July 30

Being triggered by Laurent Schneider’s post “extract xml from the command line“; I completely forgot about the C-based XDK tooling you nowadays can find in your $ORACLE_HOME. You, probably just like me, weren’t even aware, there were some (C-based that is). Most of these are executable’s and not “just” Java tools, although xsql is a shell script that still starts Java. More information can be found here in the “Oracle XML Developer’s Kit Programmer’s Guide 11.2

I mean in principle they are not “new”, they were there since 8.1.x, but now they are compiled executables which you can use on the shell prompt and or in scripting and that is, at least for me, easier than doing the same via their $ORACLE_HOME/xdk Java counterparts.

A shortlist:

I once started this website because of the steep learning curve regarding XMLDB functionality. After one year of existence the following posts were written by mean , for me as a notepad to remember what I have learned and or checked, tested or figured out and to pass it on to all those who are interested in XMLDB functionality as well.

I hope these posts, this list provided here, will be of help, to make those first steps or help designing a working and performing XMLDB environment. There is still a lot to describe and learn and hopefully I have time to cover these in the second year to come.

Have fun reading.
