Probably not the answer you were looking for, but here 
If your data is already in a database, and you already 
know the SQL that gets you the info you need, why not 
combine these two pieces of info with a utility like 
the Oracle XML SQL Utility for Java and... 
 -> Query the data with full speed and power of your database 
 -> Query it from any point of view required for the app at hand 
 -> Return on-the-fly XML results from what you find 
Using something like an Object View you can predefine 
a rich structure to your data, query it using SQL3 object 
query syntax, and get the rich structure back in the XML 
for the results. You can see the "Insurance Claim" demo 
that comes with the Oracle XSQL Servlet for an example. 
I'm assuming there are a lot of Nokia cell-phone models 
out there... :-) 
Take care.
