XML Export: SSAS?

I recently built a stored procedure that uses a cursor to loop on a recordset of attorneys, builds a temporary view containing calendar events for each attorney, and exports that view to an external XML file.  The temporary view and XML export code works, but I had to do some funky stuff with the code to get it to work.  This made me start thinking about SSIS.  

Is an XML export type of thing that SSIS is made for?  Additionally, the sproc described above is just one of several in my project.  Can I call an SSIS procedure from a TSQL sproc?

You need to use a XML task for source or destination?
You can call a SSIS package from a Stored Procedure directly or from a SQL Job.
Give more feedback!

If SSIS is appropriate, I'd use it as an XML source.
I'm pumping the XML files to a web server where I front them with PHP.

You need to read XML source and where you need to insert data? In database?

The data resides IN the database.  The database EXPORTS XML files.  The website READS the XML files.

To call an SSIS Package from T-SQL, use the sp_start_job procedure:
USE msdb;
GO
EXEC dbo.sp_start_job N'SSIS_PACKAGE_NAME';
GO
 
Here is an example of a way to use the .NET Script Componenty with your Stored Procedure and produce an XML destination:
