This RFC proposes upgrading DBXML and Xqilla to the latest version.


MapGuide uses the DBXML and Xqilla libraries to perform XML manipulation. The version used by MapGuide is 2.3.10 and the latest version at the time of this RFC is 2.5.16.

Proposed Solution

Upgrade the existing DBXML and Xqilla libraries to the latest version.


Some of the MapGuide server's resource service codebase will need to be modified to use the NEW APIs of the upgraded libraries due to some of the methods being deprecated. The methods used are all internal and are not publically exposed.

Test Plan

Test existing functionality and stability.



Future Plans

Remove MapGuide's own copy of the source and allow the component to be installed/upgraded by the enduser.
