| Does anyone know of a general purpose tool 
| that will allow data to be exported from, 
| and imported into, a relational database?
| It would have to allow some form of mapping
| between XML entities/attributes and database tables/fields.

For Oracle databases, Oracle provides the XML SQL Utility
library to do bidirectional mapping. It takes a canonical
mapping approach that works for all supported built-in types
and user-defined object types. It leverages XSLT to 
capture mappings from custom to canonical mappings.

Info on it can be had at:
