Use package DBMS_XMLGEN. This one very nicely converts contents of a table to XML. If you have hierarchy, use nested tables and Oracle objects.

Try something like:

set pages 0 head off feed off long 32000 longc 32000
Select DBMS_XMLGEN.GETXML ('select empno,ename,job,deptno from emp')
  from dual;

Open in new window

To include single quotes in query, put them twice:

Select DBMS_XMLGEN.GETXML (
      'select wonum from workorder where status =''COMP''')
  from dual;
