Apache Xalan-C/C++ XSLT Library Version 1.11
Project Description:
The Apache Xalan C/C++ Project provides a library and a
command line program to transform XML documents using a
stylesheet that conforms to XSLT 1.0 standards.
The source package contains all the code to create the library,
a command line transform utility and the documentation.
The documentation packages provide pre-built html documents
for web browser use.
Binary prebuilt packages are available for some platforms.
We could use help providing packages for more platforms.
Xalan is a project of the Apache Software Foundation.

Steps for doing a UNIX build from source distributions
For users who want to build in the UNIX environment,
1. The Xalan build files are written for GNU make, and will not work with
other make utilities.
2. Set the XERCESCROOT environment variable to the path to the root directory
of Xerces-C++.
3. Set the XALANCROOT environment variable to the path to the c directory in
the root directory of the Xalan-C++ distribution. For example, if the
distribution is located in "/home/mydir", you would set the XALANCROOT to
4. (Optional) If you decide to build with ICU, integrate the build with ICU
by installing the ICU (see Using the ICU) and defining XALAN_USE_ICU to a
value, for example: export XALAN_USE_ICU=true. Set the ICUROOT environment
variable to the path to the root directory of ICU. Note that building Xalan
with ICU requires that Xerces must also be built with ICU.
5. Change directory to XALANCROOT. You can also build Xalan-C outside of the
source tree, but you will need to adjust the path to the runConfigure script
in the next step.
6. Run the runConfigure utility and provide the platform, C compiler, and
C++ compiler flags as indicated below. The runConfigure utility is used to
generate the appropriate Makefile for the desired build platform based on
the options specified by the user. Valid options for the runConfigure
utility are:
./runConfigure -p <value> -c <value> -x <value> [-[flag] <value>]
flag Description
p Build platform. Option must be provided by user. Valid values
include: aix, linux, freebsd, netbsd, solaris, hp-10, hp-11, hp-11-ia64, irix,
tru64, macosx, cygwin.
c C compiler name. Example: gcc, cc, c89, xlc_r, etc.
x C++ compiler name. Example: g++, xlC_r, CC, etc.
d Indicates build is a debug build. Takes no values. Default is no
t Transcoder to use. Valid value is 'icu'. Default is null.
m Type of localization support method. Valid values include: inmem,
icu, and nls. Default is inmem.
M Locale for Message Localization Support. Default is "en_US"
r Threads option. Valid values include: pthread or dce. Default is
pthread. (valid on HP-UX only)
b Specify whether it is a 32-bit or 64-bit build. Valid values are 32
and 64. Default is 32-bit
P Install root directory. Used if invoking build with gmake install or
gmake install-package. Default install root directory is /usr/local
l Extra link options other than the default. Default is null
z Extra compiler options other than the default. Default is null
C Extra configuration options.
h To get help on the above commands. Default is no help.
Linux using GCC: ./runConfigure -p linux -c gcc -x g++
Linux using the Intel compiler: ./runConfigure -p linux -c icc -x icc
AIX (32-bit): ./runConfigure -p aix -c xlc_r -x xlC_r
AIX (64-bit): ./runConfigure -p aix -c xlc_r -x xlC_r -b 64
Cygwin (32-bit): ./runConfigure -p cygwin -c gcc -x g++
HP-UX 11 (32-bit): ./runConfigure -p hp-11 -c cc -x aCC
HP-UX 11 (64-bit): ./runConfigure -p hp-11 -c cc -x aCC -b 64
HP-UX 11 for Itanium (32-bit): ./runConfigure -p hp-11-ia64 -c cc -x aCC
HP-UX 11 for Itanium (64-bit): ./runConfigure -p hp-11-ia64 -c cc -x aCC -b 64
Solaris (32-bit): ./runConfigure -p solaris -c cc -x CC
Solaris (64-bit): ./runConfigure -p solaris -c cc -x CC -b 64
if you choose to install the distribution after building the libraries and
executables, then you will need to indicate where you would like the distribution
to be installed. To specify the install directory for your distribution, specify
the flag -P <install directory>. for example, building and installing on the
AIX platform:
./runConfigure -p aix -c xlc_r -x xlC_r -P $HOME/my_xalan
Note The standard binary directories bin, lib, and include are created in
the specified directory only if the install or install-package option is specified
in the build process.
To see the other runConfigure flags you may include, use the help flag:
./runConfigure -h
7. Purge the previous build:
make clean
8. Run the new build:
make targ
where targ can be one of:
targ Description
all Build the libraries and Xalan executable. This is the default target
if no targ is specified.
clean Deletes existing binaries, executables, libraries, tests, and
install Build the library, executables, and samples, and copy them (along with
the header files) the specified install location.
install-package Installs the library, executables, and samples to the
specified location.
Samples Builds the samples.
Tests Builds the tests.
