Cascading update in Infopath form using XML data

We often come across with the requirement to do dynamic update. Since SharePoint is new. I worked a lot on finding this solution. Here we go simple steps for this….
Step one:

Create a XML file like in this format …

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                <Country value="India">
                                <State value="Tamil Nadu"/>
                                <State value="Andhra Pradesh"/>
                                <State value="Kerala"/>
                <Country value="Srilanka">
                                <State value="Western Province"/>
                                <State value="Eastern Province"/>
 Step 2:
Open InfoPath form and create the Country and State dropdown list boxes.

Step 3:
Add the xml data which we created from the InfoPath form.

Step 4:
Give the xml data name and click finish …

Step 5:
Right click list box of country and go to properties

Step 6:
Select the xml data source and Select the Country as value.

Step 7:
Similarly go to state properties and click to add the xml data and filter data to country ….

Step 8:
And now click preview to see the changes…
