Source Repository


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

You can download the Xerces-C++ source distributions from 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, but you should be aware that there is a lot of accumulated "cruft" in the archives, and many confusingly named files. Anything labeled "current" is likely not.


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/SHA files. 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 Xerces-C++ 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 <distribution-name>.asc


% pgp -ka KEYS
% pgp <distribution-name>.asc


% gpg --import KEYS
% gpg --verify <distribution-name>.asc

Alternatively, you can verify the digests on the files. A command line program called md5 or md5sum is included in most UNIX distributions. It is also available as part of GNU Textutils. Windows users can get binary md5 programs from here, here, or here.
