    Have you tried doing a TO_CHAR(XMLColumn) AS StringXMLColumn on the column to see if string conversion does the trick?

      I was trying ..


      TABLENAME.YOURXMLCOLUMN.extract('*').getStringVal() as myXMLColumn



      Got the following error.

      Error is java.sql.SQLException: ORA-00904: "TABLENAME"."YOURXMLCOLUMN"."EXTRACT": invalid identifier ..
