Application Packages

eXist-db applications are packaged as single archive files that are installed directly in the database. Deployment, upgrading to new versions and distribution become a breeze.


eXist-db is fully based upon Open Standards and Open Source making it a future-proof and substainable choice.

Forms Framework

Being a complete solution, eXist-db tightly integrates with XForms for complex form development.

Rich Stack of Libraries

Develop entire applications in XQuery using eXist-db's rich set of libraries.

Community Driven

Being Open Source since 2001, eXist-db development has always been driven by the needs of a large user community.
