Using XQL to develop standalone applications

You can use XQL to develop standalone applications, JDBC clients, JavaBeans, and EJBs to process XML data. The query() and parse() methods in com.sybase.xml.xql.Xql enable you to query and parse XML documents. Because you can write standalone applications, you do not have to depend on Adaptive Server to supply the result set. Instead, you can query XML documents stored as operating system files or stored out on the Web.
