I haven't followed this thread and to be honest I opened this message
only by accident, but I cannot help to remark that there ARE native xml
databases that have integrated support for XSLT and Xquery (and more). I
have good experience with X-Hive/DB:
eXist supports XSLT by having a transform() function that uses Xalan,
to allow you to transform the XML fragments returned by the query
with a stylesheet.
What I mean is when you do something like:
...the instruction will incur the same cost as if you had done
for $product in collection(lotsOfXML)//products
in XQuery, as the XML will have been stored and indexed by the db.
Can X-Hive/DB do that? Does it have an XSLT 2.0 processor?
