XML Web Service Question

Hello, I have been asked to research a way to export data from the SAP BW into a remote application. I know nothing about SAP and I have a few questions. We would like to take data from SAP BW and put it in an XML file. Then we would like to automatically invoke a remote web service which will parse the data into the other applications database.

My first questions is can SAP BW export some of its selected data into an XML file? If so how is this done (what tools, components, applications, etc. are necessary) and what is the level of complexity?

My second question is can a remote web service be invoked automatically form the SAP BW and can the previously mentioned XML file be sent out to the web service for parsing and loading? If so how is this done (what tools, components, applications, etc. are necessary)and what is the level of complexity?

Any help you can provide would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

    This can be done in BW.

    Try the links given below, also there is a How to document available from SAP on this.
