W3C has published eight new Web standards that aim to help businesses connect their databases with the Web.

The World Wide Web Consortium released eight new standards for its XML line on Jan. 23.

The new Web standards are designed to help businesses request information from a database, transform and access XML data and do bond databases with the Web

W3C's new Web standards were developed by the XSL Working Group and XML Query Working Group. The new Web standards are:

  • XML path language
  • XSL Transformations
  • XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language
  • XML Syntax for XQuery 1.0
  • XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model
  • XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators
  • XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Formal Semantics
  • XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization.

    The main specifications, initially released in August 2006, for these eight new Web standards, XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language, XSL Transformations 2.0 and XML Path Language 2.0, were designed to allow business users to request information from databases as well as transform and access XML data and documents.
