Is there any way or maybe a module that can handle url requests and create XML files of ContentTypes on the fly?

For example, I have a special Content called Job. This content contains several textfields, images, taxonomies... What I want to do is, another website or program can call a specific URL on my orchard website and on the fly an XML file, with a pre-defined XML structure, containing all Jobs out of the Job List, is created.

Can I maybe reuse some kind of RSS-Feed module for that ??
Is there any XML Feed Module or should I better create one on my own ??

Any idea would be helpful.

Is it RSS you want or some completely custom XML format?

Hi Bertrand,
I need to create a custom XML format.

Just create a WebAPI controller, or a plain controller, and have a route point to it.
