Subject RE: Win32 COM wrapper for XERCES - where? how?
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2001 23:49:22 GMT
The Xerces-C dev list is an more appropriate forum for this particular question as general@xml.apache.org
is for discussions that affect all Apache XML projects.

The source for the Xerces-COM wrapper is provided in the Xerces-C source releases and in the
CVS source.  A binary version was provided for a few earlier Xerces-C releases, but the COM
wrapper build
was never integrated into the automated build process.  And the motivations (better XML conformance
and pre-IE4 Win 95 compatibility) behind the COM wrapper has faded in significance as MSXML
has
improved its conformance and  pre IE4 Win 95 has faded into insignificance.

To build the COM wrapper, you need to install the Microsoft Platform SDK, since the COM wrapper
depends on the interfaces definitions for the MSXML 2 parser (Visual C++ 6 only has the obsolete
MSXML 1
interface definitions).  Build descriptiom is at http://xml.apache.org/xerces-c/build-misc.html#faq-2

The Xerces-COM wrapper supports the same interfaces as MSXML, however some Microsoft extensions
to the DOM (particularly selectNodes and selectSingleNode which depend on an available XPath
implementation) return E_NOTIMPL.
