MarkLogic Server Purer than Ivory

MarkLogic Server recently underwent the XQuery Test Suite and I’m pleased to report that we are a purer form of XQuery than Ivory is of soap.

MarkLogic Server weighed in at 99.9% on the test suite, whereas Ivory is only 99 and 44/100ths percent pure, if you believe the classic marketing slogan, which ended up as the basis for a country song by Ronnie Milsap, Pure Love. (Chorus: pure love, you’re the picture of pure love, ninety-nine and forty-four one-hundredths percent pure love.)

Here is the XQuery Test Suite Result Summary. The detailed report that lists every single test on a pass/fail basis is here.

Dare I say:

MarkLogic Server,
You’re the picture of XQuery,
(More than) 99 and 44 one-hundredths percent pure XQuery

  1. I was wondering if there should be more of a push to standardize XQuery at the level it is most(?) frequently used. That is as a query language against an XML database and a webapp templating language. Does anybody write cross processor XQuery?Maybe this is a java community process (JCP) type of thing ML could spearhead?For example, it would be really nice to be able to start a project with eXist (using my MacBookPro or Ubuntu, which ML does not support) and migrate to,-Rob

  2. MarkLogic will run on Ubuntu and OS X just fine. No, it isn’t supported on those platforms, but neither is eXist “supported.”
