As Tamino’s XQuery implementation is missing the preceding reverse Axis, I was wondering if there was any way to perform the following task.
Let’s say I have this XML document :001 002 019 020
Chapter are recursive and can contain any number of terminal Article nodes.
What I want to do is to select an article from its id (eg “020”), and count how many preceding Article nodes I have (eg 19). That is its position among all other Articles.
Axis preceding::Article, would be great, but it is not implemented yet.
I developped an SXS to count Article using SAX, but this messes my Tamino DB’s memory (Memory Allocation Failed).
Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.
