Class XQueryExecutable


public class XQueryExecutable

An XQueryExecutable represents the compiled form of a query. To execute the query, it must first be loaded to form an XQueryEvaluator.

An XQueryExecutable is immutable, and therefore thread-safe. It is simplest to load a new XQueryEvaluator each time the query is to be run. However, the XQueryEvaluator is serially reusable within a single thread.

An XQueryExecutable is created by using one of the Compile methods on the XQueryCompiler class.
