You may try asking on the dbxml-user mailing list:

Good luck!

That and the developer's mailing list is dead, nor have we succeeded for our own part in contacting Bradford or any other person involved with making dbXml.

We also have lots of issues and questions concerning the use (stuff described in the prog-guide that doesn't work plus general examples).

To cutiepie,
You can get good help on the dbXml commands when you're logged into the dbXml admin (dbXml.exe).
Use the HELP command extensively. I.e. HELP USER shows you alternatives...
then for example changing a password (which wasn't described anywhere, easily resolves to the command)

USER <username> PASSWORD <newpassword>

or for assigning a role credential

USER <username> ADDROLE <role-id>


If there's anyone else using dbXml in either evaluation/production uses, I'd be grateful if anyone else here could answer questions.

We mainly have issues running XSLT queries (either my syntax is wrong or it's a bug, but syntax isn't described properly anywhere so it's difficult to tell), and performing full text queries (throws NullPointerException in some method convertSymbolToName(...)) as well as figuring out whether you can actually make cross-collection queries?

I.e. say you've got a collection setup

- Journals
- Letters

is it possible + how can you query the documents stored in both Journals + Letters collection at the same time?
