Abstract

The XPATH language is becoming increasing popular for querying XML data on the Web. XPATH is complex mainly due to its abbreviated syntax. The XPATH Processor parses an input XPATH expression and generates a corresponding parse tree that is normalized to eliminate abbreviated syntax. Transformations are then applied to the parse tree to facilitate straightforward generation of a data flow execution tree. The XPATH Processor API is designed to provide a simple interface to XPATH query engines.
