Recent finding: XQuery Adoption Rate Soaring?
In a recent developer survery conducted amoungst XML developers, some interesting findings jump out immediately:
'52% of XML developers have already started working with XQuery in the last 12 months and another 33% have plans to start using XQuery in 2005'
This is a significant figure, given the 550 respondants we had to the survey, I think it is clear we are seeing a leading edge curve of developers taking an interest in this technology. For readers of Java.net, this should not be interpreted as a threat, more as an excellent tool to succeed in the on-going challenge of data integration between XML, relational and many other data sources.
I've included the press release below, but if you want to get your hands on the detailed developer survey you can head to the DataDirect website, fill out a quick form and we'll send you a copy.The press release is available here:
