Saxon runs all the XQuery Use Cases.
The relevant queries (some of which have been corrected from those published by W3C) are included
in the Saxon distribution (folder
use-cases) together with batch scripts for running them.
A few additional use cases have been added to show features that would otherwise not be exercised.
A separate script is available for running the STRONG use cases since these require Saxon-SA.
Also included in the distribution is a query
samples/query/tour.xq. This is a query that
generates a knight's tour of the chessboard. It is written as a demonstration of recursive functional
programming in XQuery. It requires no input document. You need to supply a parameter on the command
line indicating the square where the knight should start, for example
start=h8. The output
is an HTML document.
