XUpdate is a standard for updating XML documents. It lets you modify the content and structure of XML by expressing changes as simple add, replace, or delete operations. The method is more efficient than sending full documents over the network. XUpdate statements look like simplified XPath expressions, which are combined with regular XPath queries to specify where updates should take place in the document hierarchy. This makes it easier to reason about how your updates will affect complex XML data structures without writing custom update logic for each situation.
