Date: Thu, 16 Nov 2000 16:07:36 -0800 From: Steve Muench <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: ANN: Oracle XML SQL Utility 2.1 Beta
Release 2.1.0 Beta of the Oracle XML SQL Utility is now available on Oracle Technet web site.
Key new features include:
SAX2 output from any SQL query for handling XML query output of arbitrary size in custom programs or SAX filters.
Full support for any JDBC driver, removing previous restrictions on the XML->to->DB insert/update/delete functionality which formerly only worked with the Oracle JDBC driver. The SQL->to->XML direction continues to support all drivers as it did before.
Initial XML Schema support, allowing you to produce inline XML Schema for the XML result of any SQL query
New support for retrieving data as XML attributes instead of elements by using standard SQL column aliasing.
e.g. SELECT FOO as "@foo", BAR as "bar" FROM BAZ produces: <rowset> <row foo="foovalue"> <bar>barvalue</bar> </row> </rowset>
