This Programming Guide is for Xerces-C++ version 2.8.0.

Independent of the API you want to use, DOM, SAX, or SAX2, your application must initialize the Xerces system before using the API, and terminate it after you are done. This is achieved by the following code:

#include <xercesc/util/PlatformUtils.hpp>
// Other include files, declarations, and non-Xerces-C++ initializations.
XERCES_CPP_NAMESPACE_USE

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
  try {
    XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize();
  }
  catch (const XMLException& toCatch) {
    // Do your failure processing here
    return 1;
  }

  // Do your actual work with Xerces-C++ here.

  XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate();

  // Other terminations and cleanup.
  return 0;
}

XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize() and XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate must be called at least once in each process. You are allowed to call XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize() and XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate multiple times, but each call to XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize() must be matched with a call to XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate.
