how would i configure the editor so that saxon can find file

Post by joyceschan » Wed Jan 31, 2007 1:06 am

I was looking at this tutorial

http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2005/03/02/xquery.html

which I think makes use of the xquery collection function, and I'm getting 'invalid URI passed to {recipeml/docs.xml} passed to collection() function' error

I've check that the example runs with saxon using command line.

Pls help
:-)

Hello,

I do not get the error. Please post small samples of your XQuery file, your collection catalog file and the XML documents referred in the collection catalog file.

my xquery file:
----------------------------
(: A unique, sorted list of all unique
ingredients in the recipe collection,
with URLS to link to the recipes. :)

<ingredients>
{
for $ingr in
distinct-values(collection('recipeml/docs.xml')/recipeml/recipe/ingredients/ing/item)
order by $ingr
return
<item name="{$ingr}">
{
for $doc in
collection('recipeml/docs.xml')
where $doc/recipeml/recipe/
ingredients/ing/item = $ingr

return
<title url="{document-uri($doc)}">
{$doc/recipeml/recipe/head/title/text()}
</title>
}
</item>
}
</ingredients>

Hello,

I created a docs.xml inside the recipeml subfolder of the folder containing the XQuery, with the content:

Code: Select all

<collection>
<doc href="1-2-3_Cookies.xml"/>
</collection>
I created the 1-2-3_Cookies.xml file in the same folder as docs.xml containing the "Beef and Cheese Pie" recipeml element that you posted, I executed the XQuery and I obtained:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ingredients>
<item name="8 oz. crescent rolls">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="8 oz. cut green beans">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="8 oz. tomato sauce and mushr">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="Chopped green bell pepper">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="Cinnamon">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="Egg,slightly beaten">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="Garlic salt">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="Ground beef">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
<item name="Shredded Cheddar cheese">
<title url="file:/D:/temp/support/ftopic2192/recipeml/1-2-3_Cookies.xml">Beef and Cheese Pie</title>
</item>
</ingredients>
If you still get the error when running the XQuery please send us an archive containing the folder with all the files that you use for running the XQuery.
