I have a MSSQL 2008 database, and i need to create either an XML or JSON feed from a query. Nothing complex just 8 x pairs of data (value, label) What is the easiest way to do this? Can i do it directly from SQL or do i need a script in-between?

Note: the feed will be used to populate a geckoboard dashboard.

MSSQL 2008 has a "for xml" clause that can be used to return xml from query statements.
You may look for info at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178107.aspx

with php, you can do just a simple
json_encode($yourresultarray)

Open in new window

to send json to the requesting page. Assumed to be the geckoboard.
