Xerces is a set of open-source XML parsing libraries developed by the Apache Software Foundation. The Xerces libraries are available in both Java and C++.

The Xerces libraries provide high-performance, scalable, and fully compliant XML parsing and validation. The libraries support all major XML standards including XML 1.0, XML Schema 1.0, DOM Level 2, and SAX2. The Xerces libraries also provide support for the latest W3C Recommendations such as XML Inclusions (XInclude) and XML Base.

The Xerces libraries have been widely adopted by commercial and open-source software projects. The Xerces-C++ library is used in a number of high-profile commercial XML applications including Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Visual Studio, and XML Spy. The Xerces-J library is the reference implementation of the XML Schema 1.0 specification and is used in a number of Java-based XML applications including the Oracle XML Parser for Java, IBM WebSphere, and the Apache Tomcat server.

What is a Xerces butterfly?

The Xerces butterfly is a species of butterfly in the family Lycaenidae. The butterfly is native to North America, where it can be found in woods and fields. The Xerces butterfly is named after the ancient Greek king Xerxes I, who ruled from 486 to 465 BC.

Why is it called Xerces Society?

The Xerces Society is an organization that focuses on the conservation of invertebrates, particularly bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The name of the organization comes from the Greek myth of the tragic figure Xerces, who was turned into a dandelion by the goddess Hera. The story of Xerces is meant to symbolize the importance of pollinators in the natural world, and the organization chose the name to reflect their mission. What plant is the best pollinator? There is no one "best" plant for pollination, as there are many different types of pollinators with different preferences. Some common pollinators include bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, and flies, and they will all prefer different plants depending on the size, shape, and color of the flowers. In general, native plants are the best choice for pollinators, as they are adapted to the local climate and insects.

What is the rarest butterfly? There is no definitive answer to this question as there is no agreed upon definition of "rarest butterfly." However, some experts consider the rarest butterfly to be the Queen Alexandra's birdwing ( Ornithoptera alexandrae), which is found in the rainforests of Papua New Guinea. This butterfly is critically endangered, with an estimated wild population of only about 200 individuals. What is the first extinct animal? The first extinct animal that we know of is the woolly mammoth. Woolly mammoths lived in the coldest parts of the world and were adapted to survive in these conditions. They had thick fur coats and long tusks that they used to scrape the snow and ice to get to the vegetation beneath. The last woolly mammoths are thought to have died out around 4,000 years ago.
