DataDirect Technologies, a leading provider of components for connecting software to data, announced the development of DataDirect XQuery, an embeddable, standards-based software product that enables Java developers to access both relational and XML data sources using a single query. Built to accommodate XQuery, the new language for querying and creating XML documents, DataDirect XQuery will join DataDirect Technologies' comprehensive offering of data connectivity components to simplify application development, allow portability across databases and ease application deployment.

DataDirect XQuery is based on a solid technical foundation combining data connectivity and XML expertise with long standing relationships with the world's top database vendors. With an understanding of product direction and the latest database versions and architecture modifications, DataDirect Technologies will offer the most advanced, database-independent and platform-agnostic XQuery engine available.

DataDirect XQuery is scheduled to be available in the first half of 2005. A strategic beta program is scheduled to be available this fall. DataDirect Technologies will exhibit at the JavaOne Conference in San Francisco June 28 through July 1st.
