xQuery using FLWOR


Well, you actually can user FLWOR for xquery. It’s really refreshing!!

What is FLWOR?

FLWOR (pronounced “flower”) is an acronym for “For, Let, Where, Order by, Return”.

  • For – selects a sequence of nodes
  • Let – binds a sequence to a variable
  • Where – filters the nodes
  • Order by – sorts the nodes
  • Return – what to return (gets evaluated once for every node)

Samples :

 for $t in tokenize("a/b/c/d/e/f/g","/")
 return <token>{$t}</token>

In real sample case, you can iterate query-string into any XML you want. Combine with substring-before($string,$delimiter) and substring-after.
