Use the links below to download the Xerces-C++ from one of our mirrors. You must verify the integrity of the downloaded files using signatures downloaded from our main distribution directory.

If you do not see the file you need in the links below, please see the master distribution directory or, preferably, its mirror. Only current recommended releases are available on the main distribution site and its mirrors. Older releases are available from the archive download site.


The currently selected mirror is If you encounter a problem with this mirror, please select another mirror. If all mirrors are failing, there are backup mirrors (at the end of the mirrors list) that should be available.

Verify the integrity of the files

It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP or MD5 signatures. Please read Verifying HTTP Server Releases for more information on why you should verify our releases.

The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the KEYS as well as the asc signature file for the particular distribution. Make sure you get these files from the main distribution directory, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures using

% pgpk -a KEYS
% pgpv apache_1.3.24.tar.gz.asc


% pgp -ka KEYS
% pgp apache_1.3.24.tar.gz.asc


% gpg --import KEYS
% gpg --verify apache_1.3.24.tar.gz.asc

Alternatively, you can verify the MD5 signature on the files. A unix program called md5 or md5sum is included in many unix distributions. It is also available as part of GNU Textutils. Windows users can get binary md5 programs from here, here, or here.
