I am exploring the possiblities of getting table output or query output to an XML file. Please let me know whether it is possible in Oracle. (a similary way like external table option).
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply.
But that did not work, it was giving error.

I used following -

select dbms_xmlquery.getxml('select id,full_date,day_name from dimension_time where rownum<=3') from dual

Error:
ORA-00904: "DBMS_XMLQUERY"."GETXML": invalid identifier

Then I used following -

select dbms_xmlgen.getxml('select id,full_date,day_name from dimension_time where rownum<=3') from dual

And it executed successfully.

Best Regards,
-Anand

Check if you have this package in DBA_OBJECTS, if not then search in $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin which script creates it and execute it.
Else check if there is the PUBLIC SYNONYM, if not then create it.
