On a test page, I successfully created a google map that pulls both marker and infoWindow information from an XML file. I did this just to get a feel for working with the API. It works fine. However, I do have a SQL database that has this information
in it already. This database is updated behind the scenes regulary via a webservice.
I would like to try pulling the map information from my SQL database instead so I don't have to hand maintain the .xml file. The dabase alread has the lat/long information needed for markers. What is the easiest way for me to get that data from the SQL
database? Is there a way to run a query and use the data, or will I need to run the query and somehow have it write/update my .xml file for me?
Thank you for ideas and any links to article/tutorials.

pull it out as a list and format it in to a xml file your app is familiar with

could you provide me with a few more details please that will get me started? I've never done this particular process. Or some phrases I can google to help me find the info?

Are you trying get information by scraping Google Maps or store the information?
