January 7, 2008 - DataDirect Technologies announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center) are using the DataDirect XQuery product to provide automotive manufacturers, industry researchers and the general public access to highway crash information housed in their electronic data system.


DataDirect XQuery is an enterprise-grade XQuery processor that supports the W3C XQuery standard and enables software developers to access and query XML, relational data, SOAP messages and legacy data formats.


The product allows NHTSA and Volpe Center data to be moved directly into XML files validated against the specific car crash XML-schema design. The XQueries for processing data features, such as search and dataset construction, are performed directly against the XML files.
