I want to update the XML files when ever data base is updated.Will it be a good approach to the solution which I need??? Pls Help me......

This is a classic example of read-mostly. I would first check to see if your application supports read-mostly beans so you don't have to mess with writing your own caching. Almost all application servers handle caching in some form for entity beans, check your server documentation to see the different forms. For example WebLogic supports: Read-Only, Read-mostly, and Database Eclusive Entity Beans. All demonstrate different levels of caching.
