No it isn't in the repo. I went to their web page and clicked on the centos 7 link and I get this

[home_basex_opensuse]
name=BaseX openSUSE Build (CentOS_7)
type=rpm-md
baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/repodata/repomd.xml.key
enabled=1

You need to add the basex repository.

So I need to go to

/etc/yum.repos.d

create a file called

home_basex_opensuse

paste in

[home_basex_opensuse]
name=BaseX openSUSE Build (CentOS_7)
type=rpm-md
baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/repodata/repomd.xml.key
enabled=1

I tried that, but it still says it can find it. I even tried yum search and yum search all BaseX, but not finding anything.

then you did NOT add the openSUSE OBS repo
yes opensuse's OBS

save THIS FILE!!!!!
http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...:opensuse.repo

to /etc/yum.repo.d

then update yum ( not really needed yum will AUTO update the database once you start it )
Code:
su -
yum update
then do a search
AND IT IS CAPITALIZATION SENSITIVE AS WITH EVERYTHING ELSE with linux
Code:
su -
yum search basex
---- you will see it in the output  , then
yum install basex
a warning will pop up asking to import the NEW repos security hash
SAY YES!!!! to that

Here is what I have

pwd
/etc/yum.repos.d

ls
CentOS-Base.repo CentOS-fasttrack.repo epel.repo
CentOS-CR.repo CentOS-Sources.repo epel-testing.repo
CentOS-Debuginfo.repo CentOS-Vault.repo home_basex_opensuse

cat home_basex_opensuse
[home_basex_opensuse]
name=BaseX openSUSE Build (CentOS_7)
type=rpm-md
baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/repodata/repomd.xml.key
enabled=1

then did yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: dallas.tx.mirror.xygenhosting.com
* epel: reflector.westga.edu
* extras: mirror.oss.ou.edu
* updates: mirrors.gigenet.com
No packages marked for update
