XQuery support in Tamino API for Java

I am evaluating Tamino, especially with regards to the Java API support.

From what I unserstand, there is support in Tamino for XQuery (the W3C standard) and X-Query(a Tamino querying standard similar to W3C XQuery).

Assuming the above is correct, my question is does the Java API have complete support for querying a Tamino XML Server using W3C Xquery.

Also, what are the advantages to using the Java API as opposed to the TaminoClient API which uses the HTTP interface to Tamino.

Thanks a lot

The Java API should support most (if not all) XQuery expressions that Tamino supports.

The Java API is to be preferred over the TaminoClient API for new applications. It is more up to date and allows the user greater configuration.
