XQuery Functions against the xml Data Type

This topic and its subtopics describe the functions you can use when specifying XQuery against the xml data type. For the W3C specifications, see http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-xpath-functions-20040723.

The XQuery functions belong to the http://www.w3.org/2004/07/xpath-functions namespace. The W3C specifications use the "fn:" namespace prefix to describe these functions. You do not have to specify the "fn:" namespace prefix explicitly when you are using the functions. Because of this and to improve readability, the namespace prefixes are generally not used in this documentation.

The following table lists the XQuery functions that are supported against the xmldata type.
