XMLATTRIBUTES

Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

The XMLATTRIBUTES() function is used to create attributes inside of XMLELEMENT().

SELECT xmlelement(
  NAME element,
  xmlattributes('value' AS attr)
)
create.select(xmlelement("element",
        xmlattributes(val("value").as("attr"))
      ))
      .fetch();

The result would look like this:

+-------------------------+
| xmlelement              |
+-------------------------+
| <element attr="value"/> |
+-------------------------+
