Default XQuery from command line

Hello everyone,

I'm having problems executing XQuery from command line. The documentation from saxonica is not working. I need sometnig like

java -jar saxon9.jar -s "input.xml" query=query.xq > out

or alteranatively introducing the query within the command.

Im not sure how to get to java net.sf.saxon.Query.

Can anyone help me please.

Thank you in advance.

Tomi.

The documentation here http://www.saxonica.com/documentatio...mmandline.html does not show any java -jar syntax. Instead it says:
Code:
java  net.sf.saxon.Query   [options]   query   [ params...]
So make sure you have the necessary jars on your class path and try the above or provide the classpath in the java call e.g.
Code:
java  -cp C:\saxon\saxon9.jar net.sf.saxon.Query   [options]   query   [ params...]

It's not clear whether you actually found the documentation:

http://www.saxonica.com/documentatio...mmandline.html

You can't use the -jar option because the default entry-point to saxon9.jar is the XSLT processor. You need something along the lines of

java -cp saxon9.jar -s:input.xml query.xq

qualifying each of the filenames with a path if necessary.
