Nope. You will still have to use traditional ways to connect to the database using a language of your choice.
XML is not really a language ( like Java or C++ ). XML is a portable data representation format more like a CSV or an Microsoft XLS file. This means you cannot write programs using XML, but you can write programs that uses XML. It is very important not to get confused between Java and XML. They are not mutually exclusive technologies.
Hope that helps!
