A C++ written processor for parsing, validating, serializing, and manipulating XML.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Validation support
Allows the validation of XML corresponding to the DTD or schema rules linked.
Pro DOM/SAX compliant
Xerces-C++ comes packaged with the API documentation for SAX and DOM. These are two of the most highly used programming interfaces with XML.
Implementation of SAX 1.0/2.0 specification.
Implementation of DOM 1.0, 2.0 (Core, Traversal and Range), and 3.0 (Core, Load and Save) specification.
Pro Additional libraries and applications
Xerces has many applications and libraries that give additional functionality to the parser. XQilla, for example, allows for XQuery and XPath implementation.
Pro Full Unicode support
This allows all characters to be used and read/written in the DOM tree.
Con Overkill for simple needs
If a website only uses a small number of XML, that can easily be handled manually, Xerces-C++ may be considered overkill. All the validation and compliance may not be necessary.
