Thanks, Cerstin and Michael, for your suggestions. Yes, all the use cases sound perfectly reasonable to me. When it comes to the implementation, I see quite a number of obstacles to make this happen. One of the reasons is that the full-text expression, as currently implemented, discards all

Re: [basex-talk] Change default XML encoding

Dear Guillaume, if a document contains no XML declaration, the XML specification assumes UTF8 as default encoding, which is why is documents with another encoding will be declared as non-wellformed. As there is no possibility of overriding this default, you'll have to convert your documents in

The first ruins all brackets it encounters, escaping them. That's what XML serialization is about; everything else would be invalid. Once again, you may want to switch to text as output method to avoid escaping: http://docs.basex.org/wiki/Serialization Christian

Hi Philippe, I would like to know best practices for using RESTXQ for pure XML Web services, in my case AtomPub. as RESTXQ is still pretty fresh, and as BaseX is still the first implementation (the one from eXist will follow soon, thanks to Adam!), it’s probably too early to talk about best

Dear Mike, currently, all server operations are logged as plain text and shortened to a maximum of 1000 characters per single command. If you want to have more control on logging, and provide it on a higher level, you can e.g. use functions like file:append() to write your own logs to disk [1].
