select in HTML format

Last Wednesday I selected data from an HTML table : select from xml

Today, let’s try the opposite, generate an HTML table from a SQL query


select 
  XMLSERIALIZE(
    DOCUMENT
    XMLROOT(
      XMLTRANSFORM(
        XMLTYPE(
          CURSOR(
           SELECT * FROM DEPT
          )
        ),
        XMLTYPE.CREATEXML(
      '<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" 
  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" >
<xsl:template match="/">
  <html>
    <head>
      <title>Table DEPT</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <p>Table DEPT in HTML format</p>
    <table border="1">
      <tr>
        <th align="right">DEPTNO</th>
        <th align="left">DNAME</th>
        <th align="left">LOC</th>
      </tr>
<xsl:for-each select="/ROWSET/ROW">
      <tr>
        <td align="right"><xsl:value-of select="DEPTNO"/></td>
        <td align="left"><xsl:value-of select="DNAME"/></td>
        <td align="left"><xsl:value-of select="LOC"/></td>
      </tr>
</xsl:for-each>
    </table>
  </body>
  </html>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>'
        )
      )
    , VERSION '1.0')
  )
from DUAL;

Table DEPT in HTML format

DEPTNO DNAME LOC
10 ACCOUNTING NEW YORK
20 RESEARCH DALLAS
30 SALES CHICAGO
40 OPERATIONS BOSTON

Largely inspired from xmlfiles.com
