Downloading Xalan-C++

Xalan-C++ may be obtained in two ways:

  1. Binary distribution.
  2. Source distribution.

Binary distribution

See the Installing Xalan-C++ chapter for further details.

Source distribution

The Xalan-C++ sources may be downloaded from:

Note: You must verify the integrity of the downloaded files using signatures downloaded from the Apache master distribution directory.

Note: To access previous releases of Xalan-C++, visit the Apache Xalan-C++ archives. To access previous releases of Xerces-C++, visit the Apache Xerces-C++ archives

After downloading the sources, proceed to Building Xalan-C++ to build Xalan-C++

Verify The Integrity of the Files

It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP or MD5 signatures. You should only download the KEYS and the (asc/md5) signature files from the Apache Master Distribution. The Apache Mirrors of previous sections should be used to download the products.

Make sure you get the signature file for the particular distribution from the master directory, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures using:

   % pgpk -a KEYS
   % pgpv <archive-name>.tar.gz.asc


   % pgp -ka KEYS
   % pgp <archive-name>.tar.gz.asc


   % gpg --import KEYS
   % gpg --verify <archive-name>.tar.gz.asc

Alternatively, you can verify the MD5 signature on the files.
