xdmp.nodeKind

xdmp.nodeKind(
   $node as Node
) as String

Summary

Returns an xs:string representing the node's kind: either "document", "element", "attribute", "text", "namespace", "processing-instruction", "binary", or "comment".

The fn:node-kind builtin was dropped from the final XQuery 1.0 spec. This is the equivalent function in the xdmp: namespace carried over for MarkLogic 1.0 dialects.

Parameters
$node The node whose kind is to be returned.

Example

var x = {hello: "goodbye"};
xdmp.nodeKind(x);

=> object
