I am currently working as a software engineer in the SwiftKey team at Microsoft, London, United Kingdom. Previously I worked as a software engineer in the Internet of Things team at IBM, Hursley, United Kingdom.

I gained a PhD degree in Computer Science from Brunel University London. The main focus of my PhD was the development and implementation of a novel multiscale meta model checking approach for the validation of complex multiscale computational models of biological systems. Previously I gained a BSc degree in Computer Science from Babeș-Bolyai University.

    How to install Xerces-C++ from source on Ubuntu PC?

    Is this blog page still current? The Xerces page on Apache’s site gives a very complex way of installing the latest Xerces.

    • Hello Hedley,

      The Xerces-C++ setup blog page was outdated, but I have updated it now with steps on how to setup Xerces-C++ 3.2.2 from source on an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS machine.

      Hope it helps!

      Kind regards,
      Ovidiu Parvu
