Brackit is a flexible XQuery-based query engine developed at the TU Kaiserslautern in the context of our research in the field of query processing for semi-structured data. The system features a fast runtime and a flexible compiler backend, which is , e.g., able to rewrite queries for optimized join processing and efficient aggregation operations.
As a speciality, Brackit comes with extensions to work natively with JSON-style arrays and records. Another extension allows you to use a special statement syntax for writing XQuery programs in a script-like style.
