Zorba is a general purpose XQuery processor implementing in C++ the W3C family of specifications. It is not an XML database.

The query processor has been designed to be embeddable in a variety of environments such as other programming languages extended with browsers, database servers, XML message dispatchers, XML processing capabilities, or smartphones.

Its architecture employes a modular design, which allows customizing the Zorba query processor to the environment’s needs.

In particular the architecture of the query processor allows a pluggable XML store (e.g. main memory, DOM stores, persistent disk-based large stores, S3 stores).
