We would like to thank the following organizations and corporations for supporting
and sponsoring the development of eXist-db:
| The new indexing engine featured in eXist-db, since version
1.1, was made possible through the agency of the
University of Victoria node
of the Canadian TAPoR consortium, who have made it available for general
Networks, headquartered in Pleasanton, Calif., has continuously
sponsored improvements and new features since 2004 and helped to advance
development by testing and deploying eXist-db in a production environment.
|Major parts of the XQuery implementation were motivated
and sponsored by the project: "Exemplarische Internet-Edition der Werke
des jungen Goethe und Jakob Michael Reinhold Lenz'", funded by the
Stiftung. Project lead: Prof. Dr. Karl Eibl (Institut für Deutsche
Philologie, Ludwig- Maximilians- Universität München), Prof. Dr. Fotis
Jannidis (Institut für Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaft, TU Darmstadt).
|The eXist-db Wiki, the demo server and other vital parts of
our project infrastructure are kindly hosted by Fri
programvaru-syndikatet / exist-db.se in Sweden.
|The Devon Portal
Project sponsored development of various bug fixes and donated the
mail, context and sql extension modules. The Devon Portal is a partnership
of Local Authorities in Devon, UK.
| The versioning extensions, released with
eXist-db 1.4, were kindly sponsored by the Telota Initiative of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
| Travelling and development costs sponsored by Språkbanken (The Swedish Language Bank) of University of Gothenburg.
2. Tools We Use in Development
|XML and non-XML resources of an eXist-db database can be
edited and processed with XSLT and XQuery seamlessly in <oXygen/> XML Editor/Author
both through an eXist-db connection and through WebDAV in an integrated
|Jetbrains' Team City is used to ensures that new changes do not break the eXist-db codebase and build nightly installer snapshots.
