That would be true for xdmp:document-load(), but xdmp:document-insert()
does not rely on the filesystem. An XCC program could pass XML as an
external variable of type xs:string to an XQuery module, which would
unquote it, then doc-insert the result. For an example of this
But as Danny points out, XCC's built-in Content class is likely to be
more efficient for most applications. One exception relates to Robert's
other recent question: "Saving a document with properties". It's fairly
simple to use xdmp:document-insert() and xdmp:document-add-properties()
in a single transaction, while XCC's ContentCreateOptions API does not
support document properties.

> I am not a much of a Java guy, so others might be better to comment on this one, but I think the difference is that with session.insertContent, you are using Java to stream in the content to MarkLogic Server. With xdmp:document-insert, you are using XQuery to create the content in memory to insert. If you have a large amount of content on the client machine (where the XCC program is running) to load, then it makes sense to use insertContent. I believe this is what the open source project RecordLoader does (http://developer.marklogic.com/code/#recordloader).
