Today I noticed that I could actually build an index of all XSLT, XProc,
Relax NG and Schematron files on my hard disk (3316 files). I couldn’t
do that 2 years ago because the maximum number of distinct namespaces in
a DB was limited to 256 or so.
Thanks, BaseX team, for lifting this restriction!
This has already proved really useful: I knew that I wrote an XProc step
that conditionally invoked a step whose local name I remembered. The
simple XPath expression
helped me identify the two relevant files.
Since we do a lot of development in XML-syntax languages, an XML
database is really really good for structured searches on these files. I
bet you XQuery devs still use grep to query your code ;)
