    select schema
    from dba_xml_schemas 
    where schema_url = '';
    You can also view it from the XML DB repository @ /sys/schemas/PUBLIC/
    select xdburitype('/sys/schemas/PUBLIC/').getClob() from dual;

    Are you referring to xdbconfig.xsd or xdbConfig.xml

    xdbConfig.xsd is the XMLSchema that defines the structure for the xdb configuarion file xdbconfig.xml

    You can view the structure of the XML Schema it but you CANNOT modify it.

    It can be found in the reposiitory under the following path
    select * from xmltable('fn:doc("/sys/schemas/PUBLIC/")')
    or accessed via the ALL_XML_SCHEMAS view
    select schema
      from ALL_XML_SCHEMAS
     where SCHEMA_URL = ''
    xdbconfig.xml is the configuration document, it is an instance of the type defined by xdbconfig.xsd

    You can modify this document a number of ways..

    The document can be found in the repository
    select * from xmltable('fn:doc("/xdbconfig.xml")')
    select object_value
      from XDB.XDB$CONFIG
    select DBMS_XDB.CFG_GET() 
     from DUAL
    This document can be updated...

    The preferred way of updating it is to use the specific helper functions provided on DBMS_XDB (Note that these functions will start to be migrated to a new package DBMS_XDB_CONFIG in the near future).

    It is also possible to update it using the following methods

    In PL/SQL by using DBMS_XDB.CFG_GET() to read the document into a PL/SQL variable, updateXML etc or XMLQUery or DBMS_XMLDOM to update the in-memory copy and then DBMS_XDB.CFG_UPDATE() to update the configuration file
     procedure setAnonymousAccess(P_STATE VARCHAR2)
      V_XDB_CONFIG := dbms_xdb.cfg_get();
      if (V_XDB_CONFIG.existsNode('/xdbconfig/sysconfig/protocolconfig/httpconfig/allow-repository-anonymous-access') = 0) then
        select insertChildXML
                     XMLType('<allow-repository-anonymous-access xmlns="">' || lower(P_STATE) || '</allow-repository-anonymous-access>'),
          into V_XDB_CONFIG
          from dual;
        select updateXML
          into V_XDB_CONFIG
          from dual;
      end if;
    In theory you can also perform SQL operations on XDB.XDB$CONFIG, use WebDav to open and edit the document in an DAV enabled XML Editor, or use FTP to unload the document from the repository, edit it by hand and then upload the new copy.

    In general if a helper function exists on DBMS_XDB (or DBMS_XDB_CONFIG) then this is the preferred mechansim.
