xsql connects to a database using the java jdbc interface, executes an sql statement and returns the result as an xml document. The xml document is formatted similarly to csv2xml.

Example using the mysql JDBC connector

xsql -cp mysql-connector-java-5.1.7-bin.jar -c jdbc:mysql:// -u xmlsh -p password -d  -q 'select * from books'

Example using the csvjdbc driver from
xsql -cp csvjdbc.jar -d org.relique.jdbc.csv.CsvDriver -c "jdbc:relique:csv:$PWD" "select * from books"

Added suppressHeaders option
xsql -cp csvjdbc.jar -d org.relique.jdbc.csv.CsvDriver  -o suppressHeaders=true -c "jdbc:relique:csv:$PWD" "select * from books"

Oracle Example using ojdbc14.jar with failover
xsql -cp ojdbc14.jar -driver oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver \
	 -connect "jdbc:oracle:thin:@(DESCRIPTION=(LOAD_BALANCE=on)(FAILOVER=ON)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(" \
	 -user myuser -password mypass \
	 -q "SELECT * from TABLE" > drugs.xml

xsql -cp $CP -c jdbc:sqlite:sqlite.db -d org.sqlite.JDBC -execute 'CREATE table test (TITLE , AUTHOR , PUBLISHER , `PUB-DATE` , LANGUAGE, PRICE , QUANTITY , ISBN , PAGES , DIMENSIONS , WEIGHT  )' > /dev/null
