I am sorry to use oXygen band-width for what seems to be a general
XQuery question, but I am really intrigued: do you mean the usual way
of passing variable to a query (using external variables) does not work
with eXist, from Java?
Because if it is just a matter of passing strings to the query, I
would personally rather use external variables in the query, set them
from the calling Java code, and not use any pre-processing phase; in
other words always use only standard queries.
But I guess I missed something.
