If the claim is not explicit, it is implicit in the use of these terms in the context. I'm lining up with the sceptics, it's a self-serving piece of marketing fluff. > -- Also note http://weblogs.java.net/blog/jonbruce/archive/2005/03/recent_finding_1.html "'52% of XML developers have already started working with XQuery in the last 12 months and another 33% have plans to start using XQuery in 2005" That sounds like a claim that they have taken a representative sample of XML developers as a whole. As I said on xml-dev, I can easily believe those figures if the population being sampled is developers building XML applications on top of a DBMS. But that's a different population than "XML developers".
