Installation & Uninstallation

Requirements & Compatibility

Supported operating systems: Any OS with JRE 5.0 or above installed.

Application license installation.

FIX Antenna requires a license file (fixaj2-license.bin) for its work. If you have no license, please contact us at sales@btobits.com. If you have the FIX Antenna license, put it please into one of the following places:

  1. in application CLASSPATH;
  2. in application working directory;
  3. in user home directory.

Environment configuration.

Administrative module of FIX Antenna java requires JAXB 2.2 API. Corresponding library incuded into package. But earlier updates of JavaSE 6 (till update 3) comes with JAXB 2.0 API in rt.jar. This causes conflicts on these versions. To avoid this it requires to override a portion of rt.jar with the new API. There are several ways to do this: 1. Place the jaxb-api-2.2.jar into $JRE_HOME/lib/endorsed. This essentially makes your JRE to "JRE 6 + JAXB 2.2". 2. Use the system property java.endorsed.dirs when you launch your application, and have it point to the directory that contains the jaxb-api-2.2.jar. This allows you use use correct JAXB 2.2 API without modifying the JRE. 3. Implement a custom ClassLoader and block delegation to javax.xml.bind package, so that code running inside this class loader will load the JAXB API from elsewhere. This is a very advanced approach.

See the endorsed directory mechanism for more details.

Validation Benchmarks

Validation

This benchmark sample measures the time required to validate a complex message for compliance with FIX 4.4.

Structure:

How to run:


FIXML Benchmarks

FIXML benchmarks have 2 tests. They are similar from the first sight and differ only in FIX version of used protocol. This is because FIXML convertor has 2 different implementations for FIX 4.1-4.3 and for later versions. Such behaviour is predicted by means of FIXML description. Earlier versions descriptions are different and the converter was adopted to work with both meta-descriptions.

FIXML 4.1 Converter

This benchmark sample measures the time FIX message conversion into FIXML and back. The benchmark uses FIX 4.1 messages.
