[MarkLogic Dev General] (1) Canceling XQuery requests, (2) Exploring Resource Hierarchy

It isn’t too difficult to write a rudimentary explore yourself. I’ve done
one myself, which allows dir navigation. Mostly as a simple development
tool, and not yet designed to work well with dirs with many files ( you
have to have some paging to keep a bit of performance), but I could put it
on github so you could use it as a jump-start for something sensible.
I agree that the Explore in Query Console is rather rudimentary, but it
helped me often enough the way it is currently.

Exploring Resource Hierarchy
(2) cts:uri-match() doesn't make the utility of Query Console Explore any
I haven't applied this collection strategy idea I just had to my data yet,
but I hope that the collection links displayed in the Explore table will
provide navigation to the filtered list of documents in that collection.
Otherwise using collections won't work either.
The biggest advantage I see to XQuery is that as a declarative language it
just works. It reduces the problem to a simple declaration of what I want
in a result. I don't need to think imperatively. The details of how to
produce a result are left up to the platform. The complexity of the system
is reduced significantly. The tools which surround the XQuery need to be
just as simple.
I haven't read all the FAQ's and tutorials that exist for MarkLogic so many
of my questions will likely be RTFM. I jumped in with preconceived
notions (learned from oXygen and eXistDB and xDB and XMLSpy and such) about
what I need in a development environment to optimize my ability to
experiment with XQuery analysis of large data sets. A would hope the
Explore view would let me explore a three dimensional hierarchy, not just
page through a two dimensional table of 3500 pages.
That being said, eXistDB doesn't have a way to cancel a query in their
explorer so I very much appreciate MarkLogic providing for that option.
