Hi everyone... I hope everyone's doing good.

I've run into an issue with XMLType. Here's the problem:

I have an XML stored in a XMLType column in the database. I extracted it from the database, did the parsing, did all the modification and now I have an updated XML string that I need to update back into the column I fetched it from. Now this is where I'm stuck. How can I convert a String containing XML into an XMLType object?

Any ideas?

XMLType has this method:

XMLType.createXML(Connection conn, String xmlString).

I'm trying to use this one. Can anyone tell me how to go about getting the first parameter?
If there is a totally different way to do the String -> XMLType conversion, please let me know that as well.

This is a pure Java app and I'm using iBatis.

Dibyendu,
I vaguely remember reading you can use stmt.setAsciiStream() for this. I don't remember where I read it though so I don't know how well supported it is.
