XML = Database

jeninason has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I found the DBIx::XML_RDB perl extension for creating XML from existing data sources. What I need is to go the other way. I know I must be missing something.. as surely as the files are exported to XML for sharing, someone must need to occasionally put the data back into a db table. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe DBIx::XML_RDB comes w/ a script to do just that called xml2sql.pl. I've never used it, but it definitely exists; if it doesn't quite suit you, you could always hack it up until it does. Is that what you wanted?
