The old solution used some convoluted REGEXP_REPLACE logic. The new one uses a more elegant approach involving EXTRACT and LTRIM that OTN user “michaels” suggested at http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=502349&start=0&tstart=0.

Laurent spoke about the possibility during Oracle Open World 2006. It’s great to see a working example.

I recently found this site: http://www.sqlsnippets.com. Joe Fuda shows some interesting usages of the XML functions. I found the usage of the xmlagg function to convert rows to strings exceptionally useful.
