The problem here is that I already have a pipeline that has produced an 
output stream, and needed to get access to that output to include it in a 
database. It is not feasible to call that original pipeline from the 
XMLFileModule, since it is a Chiba XForms pipeline that has to be initiated 
by a user form submission.

That being said, I've solved this issue for my project.

My solution was to enhance Chicoon (the Cocoon interface to Chiba XForms) so 
that it can optionally store it's output in a DOM tree as a session attribute 
along with streaming it out into the pipeline.  Then I used the 
JXPathMetaModule on top of the session-attr module to access the individual 
elements of the output stream inside my database metadata definition for the 
modular database actions.  A bit tricky to figure out, but once I got it 
working, it rocks!
