My requirement is to convert the XML special characters like &,',<,> and" to their corresponding entity types like &amp;,&apos, &lt;,&gt; and &quot respectievely.

Is there any way of achieving this?

The values are retrieved from DB2 tables. So a conversion either while retrieving or after retrieving into COBOL variables will be good enough.
