Hello,

I need to submit some information (say, employee_id, employee_first_name, and employee_second_name) to a URL. In return the page would receive data in XML format.

Can you please guide me as to how to create a XML object in PHP to pass it on to the URL? Also, please let me know how to read back the data given in XML format. Piece of source code would be of good help.

Regards,
Thanks-in-Advance

Then you might look into the xml serialize and deserialize xml library by Keith Devens (http://keithdevens.com/software). It converts xml into an array allowing easy access.
For creating xml you can just use a string:

$myXml = '<my><xml /></my>';
