Jonathan Robie, XQuery language editor today publishes some thoughts on how XQuery has a significant role on the middle-tier. In this instance, XQuery is acting as the engine behind a RESTful interface using a commonly used servlet hooks. Check out his blog post here.
In other news, and a significant measure of the adoption of the .NET Framework on non Microsoft platforms, the Mono Project was yesterday picked up by the Redhat-backed Fedora community. As of Fedora Core 5, developers will find Mono included in all Redhat distributions. Although Redhat goes to some pains to underscore that this move does not represent any specific endorsement, I think it fair to say that this is more of implicit recognition of Mono's stability and usefulness to Fedora's community. It is also highly unlikely that the open source community that supports the leading Linux implementation would allow their source trees to be polluted if they didn't believe it has some promise or strategic advantage down the road.
