  The Ado components allow to save the data as example, drop AdoDataset components and set the connectionstring property to use the northwind database, the write this code, it will save the structure and data in xml file

  adodataset1.CommandText := 'select * from customers';

also the TClientDataset allow the data to saved as xml, you can add DataSetProivder to connect to the AdoDataset, and ClientDataset and connect to the DatasetProvider and add this line
