In the chapter Writing Oracle XML DB Applications in Java in the Oracle XMLDB Developers guide under Configuring the Oracle XML DB Example Servlet

It states:

To configure Oracle XML DB servlet, update the /xdbconfig.xml file by inserting the following XML element tree in the servlet-list element:

<servlet>
<servlet-name>TestServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-language>Java</servlet-language>
<display-name>Oracle XML DB Test Servlet</display-name>
<servlet-class>test</servlet-class>
<servlet-schema>scott</servlet-schema>
</servlet>

and update the /xdbconfig.xml file by inserting the following XML element tree in the <servlet-mappings> element:

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-pattern>/testserv</servlet-pattern>
<servlet-name>TestServlet</servlet-name>
</servlet-mapping>

You can edit the /xdbconfig.xml file with any WebDAV-capable text editor, or by using SQL function updateXML.

However it goes into no more detail regarding how this can be achieved using updateXML and further , manually editing the xdbconfig.xml file is cumbersome and can lead to a corrupt configuration.

This document shows how this is done in 11g using new procedures introduced to the dbms_xdb package, and also how to implement the same functionality in 10.2.
