Answer: How do I dump a database table into XML format?

There's a module on CPAN designed exactly for this: DBIx::XML_RDB. You give it a SQL statement, and it executes the statement and dumps the returned rows and columns out in XML:

use DBIx::XML_RDB; my $xmlout = DBIx::XML_RDB->new($datasource, "ODBC", $userid, $password, $dbname) or die "Failed to make new xmlout"; # tell DBIx::XML_RDB which data it should retrieve # (by using a SELECT statement) $xmlout->DoSql("select id, name from foo"); # write out the data in XML format print $xmlout->GetData;
The module installs two utility scripts: sql2xml dumps SQL rows into XML, and xml2sql does the opposite.

If you are using MySQL try this from the command line.

mysqldump --xml database_name table_name > out_file.xml
