it worked as above

in eclipse how to create xpy file??(File -->New -->Other has only option to create xml i need separate plug in for this?)

As of now i just imported unzipped folder as existinng project.

then i clicked on the xqy file and run --->run as--->run configuration

there in main

i searched on Query selected

(not sure why it showed same entries two times any way i selected one of them)

In arguments i gave Books2.xpy the same xquery file name i am runing

when i apply and run console gave the result of the filtered data

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><NONXML>Master Core Java</NONXML><NONXML>Get Certified in .Net</NONXML><XMLBOOK>XML and XML Schema Definition in easy steps</XMLBOOK><XMLBOOK>XSLT XPATH and XQuery Fundamentals</XMLBOOK>
If you mean create an XQuery file in Eclipse, then yes you need a plugin.
The details are here

I have no idea what an "xpy" file is?

I have no idea what an "xpy" file is?
i mean xqy which is short cut for xquery
what is the name of the plug in to search on eclipse market place? please advise
Sorry, but it beats me how one can abbreviate XQuery in a way that a "p" turns up in the string.

All the information you need for an XQuery Plug-in for Eclipse is in the link I gave you.
