I would like to create a web app using eXist. All I need is the
database, XQuery and Webdav. I am wondering if the Wiki entries at:
http://wiki.exist-db.org/comments/MinimalWebapp are up-to-date in
describing the minimal code necessary for a web app distribution, and/or
is there another place to find this information.

The description on the Wiki should still be valid (also check the
comments at the bottom).
However, with a recent snapshot, you can now also use eXist in a
minimal server mode if you are ready to store your XQueries directly
into the database: bin/server.sh will start a minimal webserver, just
providing the REST server, XMLRPC and WebDAV (XMLRPC can be disabled).
This setup just requires the jars in lib/core plus the jetty jars in
tools/jetty. The setup configures a bare-bone HTTP server listening at
port 8088. The server is limited to the pre-configured services (no
If you store your XQuery file "test.xq" (and all modules/resources it
uses) into e.g. /db/xquery, you can access it under the following URL:
test.xq should have mime-type "application/xquery", which is assigned
by default if you store it with the Java client.
