There are two ways to supply multiple input files as input to a query:
(a) use the doc() function within the query to access the file by URI
(b) use an "external variable" (a parameter to the query). You can declare this as
declare variable $doc2 as document-node() external;
and then supply a value from your calling application using methods on the DynamicQueryContext object.

Hi everybody,

I need your help. When I go to //   and down load the source code, I have a question. If we need to get data from two .xml files, like get data from two table in RDBMS, how should we do?

The Key code is like fellows:

import net.sf.saxon.Configuration; 

final Configuration config = new Configuration();
final StaticQueryContext sqc = new StaticQueryContext(config);
final XQueryExpression exp = sqc.compileQuery("MyXquery"); 
final DynamicQueryContext dynamicContext = new DynamicQueryContext(config);
dynamicContext.setContextItem(sqc.buildDocument(new StreamSource("MyFirst.xml")));  // If I have a second file MySecond.xml, how should we do?

final Properties props = new Properties();
props.setProperty(OutputKeys.METHOD, "xml");
