Note that the module will not receive additional features anymore. For reading or writing XML documents iteratively (SAX), we recommend using Qt Core's QXmlStreamReader and QXmlStreamWriter classes. The classes are both easier to use and more compliant with the XML standard.

To include the definitions of the module's classes, use the following directive:

#include <QtXml>

To link against the module, add this line to your qmake .pro file:

QT += xml

The Qt XML C++ Classes page gives an overview over the available classes in this module.
