Just noticed that my previous post contains both doc() function reference
and the setSource invocation, of which of course only on is necessary. In
fact I tried either, but could not get initial results in time independent
of the document size.
Sorry for the confusion.

Subject: Question on streaming via s9api
I am trying to process a large XML document from Java, such that the
application can pull results in linear time, i.e. independent of the
document size.
My naive attempt was to use the iterator from XQueryEvaluator like this:
      XQueryExecutable xqueryExecutable = xqeryCompiler.compile("doc('" + input + "')/*/*/string()");
      XQueryEvaluator query = xqueryExecutable.load();
      query.setSource(new StreamSource(new FileInputStream(new File(new URI(input)))));
      return query.iterator();
however a fair amount of time (depending on document size) is spent when
setSource is called, and most of the remaining time goes into fetching
the first result:
      t(0): 3885 msec
      t(1): 8628 msec
      t(65536): 8659 msec
      t(503524): 9814 msec
Also tried saxon:stream, or using query.run with a SAXDestination, but no success.
Can this be made to work similar to the above code fragment? Am I possibly
missing something obvious?
I am doing this on Saxon-EE
