Altova XMLSpy 2024 Professional Edition

The fn.put function is provided by XQuery Update Facility 1.0 as an extension to the XQuery built-in function library. (The fn: namespace prefix in this section is assumed to be bound to the namespace:


fn:put(\$node as node(), \$uri as xs:string) as empty-sequence()


The function stores a document or element to the location specified by \$uri. It is normally invoked to create a resource on an external storage system such as a file system or a database. The external effects of fn:put are implementation-defined, since they occur outside the domain of XQuery. The intent is that, if fn:put is invoked on a document node and no error is raised, a subsequent query can access the stored document by invoking fn:doc with the same URI.


See the specification for more details.
