Xerces 3.1.1

I have to do some xml related job in C++, so I'm installing Apache Xerces-C 3.1.1 on my current test environment (Windows 7 - VC++ 2010).

Once you install xerces in [YOUR_XERCES_PATH], you have to settle a few values in your project property pages:

Among C/C++, General, Additional Include Directories: [YOUR_XERCES_PATH]\include
In Linker, General, Additional Library Directories: [YOUR_XERCES_PATH]\lib
In Linker, Input, Additional Dependencies: xerces-c_3.lib

And, xerces-c_3_1.dll should available to the application you are going to write. You could easily achieve this adding [YOUR_XERCES_PATH]\bin to your system PATH.

Once you have done all of this, you are ready for your first Xerces application, as reported by the minimal official Xerces C++ 3.1.1 Programming Guide.

It is the bit of code that any application designed to use Xerces has to implement, and it just initializes and terminates the Xerces system:
#include <iostream>
#include <xercesc/util/PlatformUtils.hpp>

XERCES_CPP_NAMESPACE_USE

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
   std::cout << "Initializing Xerces" << std::endl;
   try
   {
      XMLPlatformUtils::Initialize();
   }
   catch(const XMLException& toCatch)
   {
      std::cout << "Failure on Xerces: " << toCatch.getMessage() << std::endl;
      return 1;
   }

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

   std::cout << "Terminating Xerces" << std::endl;
   XMLPlatformUtils::Terminate();

   system("pause");
   return 0;
}
