XML?

I need to convert recordsets to XML, is there an automatic way to do this
in PostgreSQL or a tool I can use? Or do I have to code this manually?

TIP 4: Don't 'kill -9' the postmaster

Here's some PHP code I use to do just that:

<xml version="1.0">
<?php
function returnRecord($resultid, $row, $level) {
$prepend = "";
for ( $y = 0; $y < $level; $y++ )
$prepend .= "\t";

$record = $prepend . "<RECORD>\n";
for ( $y = 0; $y < pg_NumFields($resultid); $y++ ) {
$record .= $prepend . "\t<" . pg_FieldName($resultid, $y) . ">";
$data = Trim(pg_Result($resultid, $row, $y));
$data = ereg_replace("&", "&amp;", $data);
$record .= $data;
$record .= "</" . pg_FieldName($resultid, $y) . ">\n";
}
$record .= $prepend . "</RECORD>\n";
return $record;
}

$conn = pg_Connect("my database connect string");
$result = pg_Query($conn, "SELECT * FROM MY_TABLE;");
$returnData = "";
$rows = pg_NumRows($result);
for ( $y = 0; $y < $rows; $y++ )
$returnData .= returnRecord($result, $y, 1);
pg_FreeResult($result);
pg_Close($conn);
?>
</xml>

Hope this helps,

Gavin

Well, it helps a little (I don't have to think that much on how to
implement the code, which is java btw... :) )
But I was kinda hoping for a feature like the one that Oracle has, where I
can tell Oracle that I want the resultset from the query to be returned as
XML. (If this is not a feature in PostgreSQL maybe it should be?)

$data = Trim(pg_Result($resultid, $row, $y));

$record .= $data;
$record .= "</" . pg_FieldName($resultid, $y) . ">\n";
}

return $record;

pg_FreeResult($result);
pg_Close($conn);
?>
</xml>

It might not help in this case anyway, but it seems like the psql \H
(toggle html output) could be a starting point* for a \X (toggle XML
output) to provide a minimal XML implementation for output.

* For someone smarter than me.

Agata Report (agata.codigolivre.org.br) does that.
