XQuery is a recommendation by the World Wide Web Consortium as a standard XML query language. In addition to being a special-purpose query language, XQuery has also features that support unexpected applications such as problem solving. We demonstrate and discuss these features by presenting several XQuery programs for solving recreational problems and puzzles. Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
