DB2® 9 features support for XQuery, an industry-standard language designed expressly for querying XML data. With XQuery and DB2 9 you can retrieve entire XML documents or XML fragments stored in XML columns. You can also specify XML-based filters for queries, transform XML output, and incorporate conditional logic into queries. This tutorial introduces you to DB2's support of XQuery, explains several basic language concepts, and shows how you can write and execute simple XQueries against XML data stored in DB2. This is the seventh in a series of seven tutorials to help you prepare for the DB2 9 Fundamentals exam 730.
