I have an xml file in a blob file.
is it possible for me to parse the xml while in PL/SQL.

so far i was only able to parse an xmlDom.DOMDocument.
the missing link is converting blob to xmlDom.DOMDocument.

thanks in advance for your help

If you can get the XML into a CLOB instead of a BLOB (it's text data, not binary data, after all), then you can convert it into an XMLTYPE (Oracles internal XML data structure).
Then there are a whole host of functions that you can use, including full Xpath support.
