Convert the results of an SQL query to XML format.
In general, use DBMS_XMLGEN instead of DBMS_XMLQUERY wherever possible.


newContext Function 
             Create a new context handle from a passed-in SQL query.
             The context handle can be used for the rest of the functions. 

setRowTag    Set the name of the element enclosing each row of the result.
             The default tag is ROW. 

setRowSetTag Set the name of the element enclosing the entire result.
             The default tag is ROWSET. 

getXML       Append the XML to the CLOB passed in.
             Use the getNumRowsProcessed function to figure out if any rows were appended. 

getXML Function 
             Returns the XML as a CLOB. 

getNumRowsProcessed Function  
             Get the number of SQL rows that were processed in the last call to getXML. 

             Set the maximum number of rows to be fetched each time. 

             Set the number of rows to skip every time before generating the XML.
             The default is 0. 

             Sets whether special characters such as $, which are non-XML characters, 
             should be converted to their escaped representation.

             Force the use of the collection column name appended with the tag _ITEM
             for collection elements. 

             Restart the query to start fetching from the beginning. 

closeContext Close the context and release all resources.
