Linking Error on Solaris

Hello

I am getting this error while proting code from windows to Solaris

Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
xercesc_2_3::XMLUni::fgDOMNamespaces Doc.o
[Hint: static member xercesc_2_3::XMLUni::fgDOMNamespaces should be defined in the program ,see Annotated Reference Manual (ARM) Section 9.4]

The code causing the error:
xercesc::DOMBuilder* CDoc::GetBuilder()
{
      if (sm_Builder == NULL)
      {
            sm_Builder = GetImplementationLS()->createDOMBuilder(xercesc::DOMImplementationLS::MODE_SYNCHRONOUS,0);

            if (sm_Builder == NULL)
                  throw CXmlException(CXmlException::eError1,"Could not create xercesc::DOMBuilder");

*****            sm_Builder->setFeature(xercesc::XMLUni::fgDOMNamespaces, true);            ******
      }

      return sm_Builder;
}

How are you linking your code?

Check out this item in the Xerces FAQ:  http://xml.apache.org/xerces-c/faq-build.html#faq-6 , entitled "Why does my application gives unresolved linking errors?"

The message you quoted is saying that you're missing a definition for a Xerces object, namely XMLUni::fgDOMNamespaces.  The most common cause of a missing symbol from a library is failure to include the appropriate library on the link line.  The Xerces faq indicates that other common mistakes are having the wrong version of the library, and namespace problems.  According to the faq, prebuilt binaries have namespaces turned on, but if you built Xerces yourself, it's possible you built it without namespaces.
