SQL Server has a concept of a XML-SQL mapping that lets you put XPath as
part of the URI. Something like:
I am pretty sure that Oracle does this as well.
I personally think that this idea of an "XML View" is a great way to
webify a relational database and make all of the data universally
addressable. It is also consistent with RESTful idea of "mediated view"
over a resource. SQL data thus exposed is accessible from XSLT
document() function, and all of the other GET clients.
