experts.. How do i output a xml in dbms_output.put_line in an anonymous block? I have a function which returns a  xmltype and I want to test the output of this function. I have an anonymous block as

set serveroutput on;
declare
v_xml xmltype;
begin
v_xml:=func_name(1,'abc');
dbms_output.put_line('vxml is' || v_xml);
end;

This is giving an error. How do I see what the xml has in it? Is there another method in dbms_output??

hi

here are two options for XML

select xmltype('<x><y><z>123</z></y></x>') from dual;
select xmlserialize(document xmltype('<x><y><z>123</z></y></x>')) from dual;
