XQuery XML help

  1. Dec 7, 2006 #1
    I have to write an XQuery that for example, "returns a list of books for a given author".

    The "given author" in this case can be anything. Therefore, I was wondering what do I need to add to give the query someting, which in return, it will process it.

    For example,

    for $x in doc("a.xml")/Stuff
    where $x/Author = [given author]
    return $x/Book

    If the "given author" can be anything, that means it doesn't need to meet a certain condition in order to be processed, correct? And therefore, you shouldn't need to condition it with a "where" statement.

    Merely process the Author attribute as you need it. What is it exactly that you are trying to do?
