Hi Techies:
I am a newbie to XML and would like to know whether the records retrieved from the SQL Database can be updated or placed into XML.
Can anyone tell me how to go about solving this problem.
ALSO DO TELL ME WHETHER WE CAN DEVELOP OR HAVE A IMPORT FACILITY WHEREIN A database table-name schema can be populated into a DTD/XSD/XDR and etc.
Looking forward to hear from you.
Plz provide me with some pointers as to how to solve this problem.

I suggest that you sift through some of the old discussions here on this topic. This is quite a popular topic and old threads will give you quite a lot of information to chew.
Bottom line is that many popular database vendors support XML both as a query language and as a way of representing the result set. You will be able to send XML documents to databases and have them convert the document into a query( although support complex queries with multiple joins is quite limited ). Oracle 8i supports XML-based database columns and standard SQLs that can query such columns. It's pretty cool. Using Oracle's XSU and XDK, you can even integrate these capabilities into standard Java applications. Oracle's technet site has a lot of information including white papers and example programs. Ofcourse if you don't use Oracle then you might want to check with your vendor's website for how's and what's of their XML support.
Good luck!
