Dynamic XML with PHP
Aug 20, 2007 @ 12:48:00

PHPBuilder.com has a new tutorial posted today with a look at the easy creation of dynamic XML with the data from a database.

In this article I will show how to generate dynamic XML documents with Object-Oriented PHP. Before I get started, let's get right to the heart of this functionality. Although the code may look fancy, being packaged up inside objects and inheritance, the key elements of this functionality rest in the the mysql_list_fields() and mysql_num_fields() functions.

The XML is built manually with the tags assigned to a string as they are built. The information is from a simple query to select all from a user-defined table and is output with a UTF-8 character encoding. They also include a Javascript (download) that helps in making an XMLHttpRequest connection to fetch the XML you've created and pull it in.
