XMLFOREST

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

The XMLFOREST() function is used to create XML forests from other elements

SELECT xmlforest(
  xmlelement(NAME e1) AS w1,
  xmlelement(NAME e2) AS w2
) 
create.select(xmlforest(
         xmlelement("e1").as("w1"),
         xmlelement("e2").as("w2")))
      .fetch();

The result would look like this:

+------------------------------+
| xmlforest                    |
+------------------------------+
| <w1><e1/></w1><w2><e2/></w2> |
+------------------------------+
