Until a wild race for a barrel of magic potion lands them in the drink. It's not quite cricket - how about a nice cup of hot water, though? Or even the first ever tea-party?

"XQuery Kick Start" delivers a concise introduction to the XQuery standard, and useful implementation advice for developers needing to put it into practice. The book starts by explaining the role of XQuery in the XML family of specifications, and its relationship with XPath. The authors then explain the specification in detail, describing the semantics and data model, before moving to examples using XQuery to manipulate XML databases and document storage systems. Later chapters discuss Java implementations of XQuery and development tools that facilitate the development of Web sites with XQuery. This book is up to date with the latest XQuery specifications, and includes coverage of new features for extending the XQuery language.

Wie alles begann: Caligulaminix, von Profession römischer Spion, hat den Auftrag, die geheimen Kräfte der gallischen Dorfbewohner auszukundschaften. Dabei stößt er unfreiwilligerweise auf den durchschlagenden Erfolg des Druiden Miraculix: Ein Trank, der übermenschliche Kräfte verleiht und die von Häuptling Majestix geführten Dörfler unbesiegbar macht. Für Gaius Bonus, den Zenturio im römischen Feldlager Kleinbonum, geht die haarige Geschichte allerdings alles andere als 'gut' aus.

Cäsar will das gallische Dorf zu einem unbedeutenden Vorort inmitten einer gigantischen Römersiedlung degradieren. Diese Rechnung hat er allerdings ohne die pfiffigen Dorfbewohner gemacht. Mit Hilfe der Braukünste von Miraculix und des markanten Gesanges von Troubadix gelingt es, diese zweifelhaften Pläne moderner Stadtplanung zu vereiteln.
