   L_INT nRet; 
   //Extract XMP MetaData & save it to a XML file. 
   nRet = L_ExtractXMPMetadata(pSrcFile, pXmlFile); 
   if(nRet != SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
   Add/Update MetaData in the XML file using any XML parser(if needed). 
   //Save XMP MetaData to a destination file using XML file that contains XMP MetaData.
