I have a question related to displaying the Database records using XML. I had gone through the eleven rules for moving a relational database to XML by Kevin Williams. All the rules are clear. But when I try to create an XML to do this, I am confused. Details�. After explaining all the eleven rules, the author creates the following DTD. <!ELEMENT SalesData (Invoice*, Customer*, Part*, MonthlyTotal*)> <!ATTLIST SalesData Status (NewVersion | UpdateVersion | CourtesyCopy) #REQUIRED> <ELEMENT Invoice (LineItem*)> <ATTLIST Invoice InvoiceNumber CDATA #REQUIRED TrackingNumber CDATA #REQUIRED OrderDate CDATA #REQUIRED ShipDate CDATA #REQUIRED ShipMethod (USPS | FedEx | UPS) #REQUIRED �� (For the sake of discussion, I included only Invoice table here) How do I create an XML for the above DTD, which displays all the records (say 10 records) from the Invoice database.??? I couldn't understand the XML, which is given by Kevin. How the values are coming from invoice table into this XML?? Any explanation is appreciated. Regards Devi
I haven't read the book myself, but I'm guessing there is a little class that translates the DB Result set into an XML string. Apparently this approach happens to be a popular one for generating XML-ized resultsets for databases that are not XML enabled.
