Is this Impossible !!

Most of the XML Parser implementations provides mechanism to generate well
formed XML documents from the DOM Tree. I have used sun's XML parser, it
provides APIs to generate well-formed XML from your Document Node.
Hope it helps.

Subject: Is this Immpossible !!

Hi All,
I have the following requirement. A client wants to query a database. It
sends out an SQL Query to the Database server. At the server side, instead
of returning a recordset, it returns an XML File.
The client on receiving the XML file, parsers it for "Validity" (to be sure
that all elements it had asked for are there).
Problem is that at the server side, How to build the xml document.
Presently, I am doing something like this
String("<Name>") + rs.getField("auName") + String("</Name>")
However, this is a very inelegant approach as the code is full of such
string concatenations.
Is there a more elegant solution to this ?  All the material on XML talks
about parsing and reading XML. What about writing them ? Are there DOM / SAX
Api extensions available that would 
create "VALID" XML documents without clutter in the code ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks & Best Regards,
