Tamino supports two query languages, the Tamino specific X-Query (spoken X-dash-Query) and the new Tamino XQuery (without a "dash"), which follows the proposals of the W3C about XML query languages. X-Query is the XML query language used in Tamino to perform queries on XML objects and on non-XML objects. The form allows you to send X-Query commands to Tamino in order to retrieve database content.
