Suitable for those requiring an introduction to XML and XQuery with eXist-db and can also be as a pre-training course for the 2 day eXist-db Development and Performance course.
The objective is to enable attendees to quickly build applications inXQuery and make them ready for production use. Attendees will learn how to diagnose and resolve performance issues, properly define indexes for best performance, and how to optimise XQuery applications for concurrency.
Application development in XQuery
We will guide you through a number of concrete application examples to show you how to:
Quickly prototype a web application in XQuery
Choose an application structure
Use the right tools for application development (eXide, oXygen, WebDAV)
Use and write function libraries and extension modules
Set up indexes, URL rewriting, external resources
Package and deploy your application
Performance and Optimisation
Performance optimisation and making an application production ready:
Understanding the basics of query execution and optimisation in eXist-db
Characteristics of the different index types and their use
Performance analysis, profiling
Tuning indexes and database settings
Optimising for concurrency
You can contribute your own use cases for discussion or as an example which can can be worked through together during the day.
