Welcome to the GalaTex Website!
GalaTex is a conformant implementation of the W3C XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Full-Tex standard proposal, an XML full text search language. GalaTex is built on top of Galax.

GalaTex’s primary goal is to serve as a reference implementation for the XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Full-Text extension language.This site contains information about GalaTex, some documentation, on-line demos, W3C full-text uses cases and the semantic implementation of the full-text primitives. GalaTex and this Web site keep evolving so please come back again soon.For any questions, please contact Emiran Curtmola, Sihem Amer-Yahia or Mary Fernández .
