You'll want to get hold of the Xml Database Developer's Guide... try and/or

Look particularly at the xml datatype (its chapt 4 n the xml database developer's guide).

Find out about the xml data type's "Extract" method and of course, we expect you know all about how to formulate an "XPATH" expression, right?

If not, not to worry, GOOGLE will take you to as many XPATH tutorials as you can stand.

You also want to read the XML DB REPOSITORY stuff.
