News: New Mule FIX transport supports securities transaction messaging

  1. FIX is a public domain protocol aimed at real-time electronic exchange of securities transactions in the Financial Services industry, and is considered to be a standard protocol for pre-trade communications and trade execution. The Mule FIX transport is based on QuickFIX/J - a full featured messaging engine for the FIX protocol that is a 100% Java open source implementation of the popular C++ QuickFIX engine. This transport allows users to read and write messages over FIX endpoints and have Mule ESB route, transform and filter messages accordingly. http://www.mulesource.org/display/FIX/Home
  2. FIX is soooo 70's, no one uses it anymore!
  3. Nice work[ Go to top ]

    I think old transport is good to be use and keep it due to most of enterprise systems are quite old. Actually, this is a good things to java dev people since we would be able to support old + cutting edge technology.

    Yes, let's use XML over JMS !

    What planet are you living on? FIX is one of the most widely used protocols in the world, it's used by pretty much every single bank, broker, hedge fund and exchange in the world and is even the "canonical" standard of several large banks. The standards body (FPL) is on the leading edge of messaging, recently splitting the messaging from the transport in FIX 5 and working on integration with ISO-20022. -John- CTO, Onix
  6. You must be joking.FIX is the major protocol used for financial transaction in exchanges.Our product communicates with some of the major stock exchanges using the FIX protocol and the new version FIX 5.0 Service Pack 2 has been released in April.So this is a great work.
  7. Integration[ Go to top ]

    Normally, it is because applications from 70's that we need Mule from integration.

  9. Again I have to add that having a raw FIX engine won't get you very far connecting to an exchange, the FIX protocol is designed to be extended and every exchange makes good use of this feature. We provide C++, Java and .NET FIX engines tuned and certified for the exchanges. Our Java FIX engine is very popular for example with businesses connecting to the ICE as they migrate from their Java API to FIX later this year. Naturally we support Mule but provide a pre-calibrated, certified FIX engine supporting market data, order routing and trade capture for real-time trade notifications. Of course you could do this with QuickFIX but it would take you weeks to calibrate it and get it certified, we provide that out of the box. Finally if you like Mule (which we do), then you can use that too. -John- Onix
  10. John, Have you or are you planning to build connectors for Mule that use your FIX engine and directConnect products? Regards, Colin

    We do plan to provide some Mule examples in our reference implementations and these would be based on real-world implementations. We haven't done this yet but we do have quite a bit of experience with Mule (and Spring) around our Java directConnect and selfConnect products. -John-
