This function can be used as a named group in functions op:group-to-arrays or op:facet-by. After grouping, the plan can also join a literal table with descriptive metadata based for each bucket number. Developers can handle special cases by taking the same approach as the convenience function and binding a new column on the return value of an sql:bucket expression on a numeric or datetime column to use as a grouping key.

$name The name of both the group and the new grouping key column with numbered buckets.
$column The identifier for the existing column with the values (typically numeric or datetime) to put into buckets. The columns can be named with a string or a column parameter function such as op:col or constructed from an expression with op:as.
$boundaries An ordered XQuery sequence of values that specify the boundaries between buckets. The values must have the same type as the existing column.
$collation The collation to use when comparing strings as described in 'Collation URI Syntax' in the Application Developer's Guide
