MarkLogic Server is a "content server": a combination of a native XML database with a fully featured implementation of the W3C XQuery language that allows XML content to be searched, queried, updated, and transformed in many different ways.
- schema-independent (but schema-aware) loading and querying of XML content, stored in native XML format
- extensive collation and natural-language support (for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, and Russian [as of late 2007])
- full implementation of XQuery (based on May 2003 version of specs; update planned but not scheduled) with extensions for XML update, full-text search, etc.
- built-in HTTP and WebDAV servers; Java connector; email processing support
- rich security model, with ability to define multiple access groups and user roles; permissions can be tied to URLs in the database or to specific library functions
- many options for full-text indexing and searching, including stemmed searching (in all supported languages) and user-created thesaurus
