I'm developing an HTTP application server dedicated to IR. The server side
languaje is Javascript throught the Webkit Javascript engine exposing
several C++ libraries conforming the commonjs specs.

My question is, can Xapian be used to perform standard SQL statements like
inserts or updates? I undestand that Xapian does it when you perform a query
or save a document but I haven't seen how to perform direct SQL statements.
These would be useful for me since I wouln't have to maintain the database
driver that I actually expose to javascript focusing only in Xapian.

Thanks a lot.
