Frustrated Database

Someone make an XQuery (namespace) IDE plugin for Eclipse. Shit, google just provided one...

Update: I just realized how horrible the XQuery specification is implemented in any sort of off-the-shelf packages. We used QuiP (Note the use of caP1+Als) for a CSCI 585:Databases homework assignment. It sucked, especially since the syntax we learned in class and documented in the notes was the 04 APR 2005 Specification while on the QuiP site they have this gem:

"The latest XQuery draft was released in May 2003 and though there have been no substantial changes, the syntax supported by the current QuiP implementation must be considered out of date."

Pretty sweet when you're writing software and have to figure out the syntax by trial-and-error.
