Xerces Pronunciation

Xerces Description

In computing, Xerces is Apache's collection of software libraries for parsing, validating, serializing and manipulating XML. The library implements a number of standard APIs for XML parsing, including DOM, SAX and SAX2. The implementation is available in the Java, C++ and Perl programming languages.

The name "Xerces" is believed to commemorate the extinct Xerces Blue butterfly (Glaucopsyche xerces).
