Creating RPG to XML documents

How can I create an XML document on the IFS from a RPG Program?
In the crudest sense, you can create a simple flat file and write to it using RPG or ILE RPG in the form of: fielddata</FIELD1> ... on and on. Then you can use CPYTOSTMF or any utility to copy it to the IFS. If you are using ILE and want to do it right, you can use the IFS API's found in the information center to open the output file in the IFS and write directly to the IFS.
