Requirements for XQuery

I’am newcomer for XQuery!
I need to know from where should I start?
i,e which tool to install and where it is available? Plz reply ASAP.
Thanks in advance

The easiest way to start with XQuery is by downloading the QuiP prototype at

This is a freestanding implementation, not designed to handle large production databases. For an industrial-strength implementation you want Tamino 4.1, but of course that’s a more significant investment.

To work with XQuery with Quip, will I need Tamino XML server as well? Which is the easiest way for newcomers?
Help is appreciated!
