I was able to run a query against a collection using the CollectionImpl class.
 
I get each and every element in the result set tagged with a namespace, like:
 
                ...
                <elem1 id="k2" xmlns:src="http://xml.apache.org/xindice/Query">
                        <type xmlns:src="
http://xml.apache.org/xindice/Query">AK</type>
                        <elem2 xmlns:src="
http://xml.apache.org/xindice/Query">
                                <elem3 id="c" xmlns:src="
http://xml.apache.org/xindice/Query">
                                        <elem4 xmlns:src="
http://xml.apache.org/xindice/Query">A</elem4>
                                </elem3>
                                <elem3 id="b" xmlns:src="
http://xml.apache.org/xindice/Query">
                                        <elem4 xmlns:src="
http://xml.apache.org/xindice/Query">D</elem4>
                                </elem3>
                        </elem2>
                </elem1>
                ...
 
I actually made another version of CollectionImpl.query(), which returns the content from the server without building a resource set as in:
 
 
    public String queryAsString(String name, String queryLang, String query, Hashtable nsMap) throws XMLDBException {
 
        checkOpen();
        try {
 
            Hashtable params = new Hashtable();
            params.put(RPCDefaultMessage.COLLECTION, collPath);
            params.put(RPCDefaultMessage.TYPE, queryLang);
            params.put(RPCDefaultMessage.NAMESPACES, nsMap);
            params.put(RPCDefaultMessage.QUERY, query);
 
            if (name != null) {
 
                params.put(RPCDefaultMessage.NAME, name);
            }
 
            String result = (String) runRemoteCommand("Query", params);
           
            return result;
        } catch (Exception e) {
 
            throw FaultCodes.createXMLDBException(FaultCodes.QRY_PROCESSING_ERROR, "Query error", e);
        }
    }
I then invoke it like:
 

 String rs=null;
 try {
  rs = coll.queryAsString(null,"XPath","/entity",new Hashtable());
  System.out.println("RESULT===>>> " + rs);
 }
 catch (XMLDBException e) {
  System.out.println("XMLRPCTest.main(): query() failed: " + e.getMessage());
  e.printStackTrace();
 }
Any ideas?
 
Thanks,
