In the last few sessions of XML Workshop we had been looking at ways of generating RSS/ATOM Feeds. You can find the previous sessions here. We have seen how to generate RSS and ATOM feeds in SQL Server 2005 as well as 2000. In the previous sessions, we have seen how to generate RSS and ATOM feeds using FOR XML PATH as well as FOR XML EXPLICIT. If you are working with SQL Server 2005 (and above), you can take advantage of FOR XML PATH and if you are still in SQL Server 2000, you can use FOR XML EXPLICIT.
So the focus of this sessions will be writing a function that accepts two XML parameters containing channel and item information and generates an RSS 2.0 feed. We will be able to call the function as in the given example.
