Unlike simple samples described in Quick Samples and "Hello, World!" Sample Walkthrough advanced samples are complete applications that have all features applications should have: error handling, logging, some business logic, GUI or console input/output etc.
All this samples were written in C# and are available currently in the following Visual Studio solutions:
- FIX Antenna Samples For Visual Studio 2010 (Samples.sln)
Solution files can be found in \Samples directory, shortcuts to these solutions exist in Fix Antenna start menu.
FixAntenna.NET installation package contains source codes of these samples as well as compiled (in Release configuration) binaries, that can be started directly from Windows Start Menu.
The following samples will be described in this section:
Receiver (or Receiver)
Sender (or Sender)
|Benchmark consists of 2 Windows Forms applications: Sender and Receiver. Sender sends a packet of messages to Receiver to measure FixAntenna performance and latency.|
|EchoServer||EchoServer (or EchoServer)||EchoServer is a passive "reflector" that accepts all incoming FIX session creation requests (accepts the incoming Logon and creates the corresponding session acceptor) and sends back (reflects) copies of all incoming application-level messages.|
|ExchangeEmulator||ExchangeEmulator (or ExchangeEmulator)||ExchangeEmulator is a Windows Forms application that extends the functionality of EchoServer and demonstrates how to implement a business scenario when a client wants to subscribe for periodically updated quotas.|
|SimpleClient||SimpleClient (or SimpleClient)|
SimpleClient provides the following functions:
- create/destroy a session;
- send a message to the chosen session;
- send messages (in the batch mode) to the chosen session.
It also contains a user control that helps to edit Fix messages.
|ICE||ICE (or ICE)||ICE Client is specially designed to facilitate testing third-party applications on compatibility with ICE customization of the FIX Protocol.|
|CMEGlobexClient||CMEGlobexClient (or CMEGlobexClient)||CME Globex Client allows to subscribe for an instrument and unsubscribe from a market data instrument.|
|Explicitly create initiator and acceptor||Benchmark|
|Create acceptor sessions using UnregisteredAccepter||Sessions|
|Use syncronization objects to block thread execution until certain condition occurs in FixAntenna||-|
|Extend features of the FixSession class||Sessions|
|Using FAST protocol||SimpleClient||CME FIX/FAST Market Data Adaptor|
|Store shared collections of open FIX sessions and syncronize these collections in multithreaded applications using critical sections||-|
|Using decorators||Using Decorators|
|Implementing custom logging of all FixAntenna events with Tracers||Error Handling|
|Create multiple sessions||Sessions|
|Customized solutions that work with real exchanges.||CME FIX/FAST Market Data Adaptor|
