This paper describes the DQL language: a new XML data manipulation language. DQL is an extension of OQL for the manipulation of tree-like and forest-like data. It integrates XPath location paths and provides them with the classical SQL operators and some specific tree transformation operators. The first version of DQL has been implemented in Java using the DOM and the SAX API's.
