Introduction

FIXEdge offers a flexible solution for Business Rules purposed to provide routing, transferring, and data manipulations for FIX messages that go through the Business Layer of FIXEdge. In addition to XML Rules, there are two ways to enhance the flexibility of message transferring and data manipulation. Those ways are scripting with JavaScript and XSLT. To use this feature properly, scripts should be written in one of the scripting languages and assigned to the Script instruction of Action section in a Business Rule.

The scripting subsystem gives the user the following advantages:

  • Saves time spent on business logic implementation
  • Flexibility and simplicity of modification
  • Does not bring significant performance breakdown

FIXEdge uses SpiderMonkey JavaScript engine


Business Rule scripting with JavaScript

It is enough to mention that the script is a JavaScript in the Script tag, in order to run the script and do the proper transformations. This structure facilitate user with all the standard Javascript features and functionality. In addition to this, it enables user to use functions that provide access to the FIX message inside data, allows manipulations with fields and groups as well as whole FIX messages.

JS FIX functionality

A trivial example of a complete JS script for a business rule is shown below:  

//take the value the 11th tag from the fix message and get the last 4 characters from it
//assign the new  value for the tag 11 with format BBBBSSSSCCYYMMDD
//where
//BBBB - any 4 characters
//SSSS - last 4 characters from the old value of field 11
//CC - century
//YY- year
//MM - month
//DD - day
 
field_11 = getStringField(11);
if(field_11.length() < 4)
  return;
last4 = field_11.slice(field_11.length() - 4);
currDate = getCurrentDateStr(YYYYMMDDUtc);
century = currDate.slice(1, 3);
century++;
result = "bbbb" + last4 + century + currDate.substr(3);
setStringField(11, result);

Error handling during script execution 

In case of syntax error in script - script execution will be terminated and failed. There is no way to handle syntax errors in script during script execution. User able to stop script execution using throw statement, the result in this case will be the same. User must be able to verify and handle logical errors using verification functions (like isNaN, isMessageValid(), etc) in condition statements.

Logging in JavaScript

print(<text>)

Example Code

print (getCurrentDateStr(DATETIMEUtc));

Execution of this line results in the following record in the application log:

[NOTE]  20131023-08:28:53.651 [4320] [../FixEdge/conf/test.js] - JavaScript '../FixEdge/conf/test.js' output: 20131023-08:28:53

1128=6 and FIXT11:FIX50 and the message has 1092 tag from FIX 5.0:
parseMessage("8=FIXT.1.1\x019=114\x0135=D\x011128=6\x0149=TESTI\x0156=TESTA\x0134=2\x0152=20081023-17:03:05\x0111=90001008\x0155=IBM\x0154=1\x0160=20080717-10:00:00\x0138=4000\x0140=1\x011092=0\x0110=171\x01", "FIXT11:FIX50");
- the following error appears:
  2017-09-13 11:28:01,558 UTC   ERROR   [JS_interpreter]  3760  C:\B2BITS\FIXEdge\FIXEdge1\conf\parseMessage.js: failed with error: Tag 1092 is not defined for this message type. Parsing stopped at column: 136 in message D with sequence number 2.


Please note: the next action in the rule will receive the replaced message!


Error Handling Functions

getErrorCode()

Returns an error code (integer value) in an undelivered message event

Example Code:

setStringField(58, "Error (" + getErrorCode() + ") " + getErrorText());


This example assigns the values 'error code' and 'error text' to field 58.

As a result of this function, the content of tag 58 inside the FIX message could be, for example,: "Error (500) Internal server error"

getErrorText()

Returns error text (string value) in an undelivered message event

Example Code:

setStringField(58, "Error (" + getErrorCode() + ") " + getErrorText());

This example assigns the values 'error code' and 'error text' to field 58.

As a result of this function, the content of tag 58 inside the FIX message could be, for example,: "Error (500) Internal server error"

History functions

saveToHistory (<historyName>, <keyFields>, <commonFields>, <expireDateTime>)

Creates a record in history <historyName> with content: <keyFields> – array of composite key or single key, < commonFields> - array of common data fields, <expireDateTime> - timestamp with an expire date-time for the ClearHistory procedure. Returns true if the function succeeded and returns false otherwise.

Example Code:

key = new Array("snd","tgt");
common = new Array("ClOrdID","dest");
saveToHistory("orders", key, common, "20101010-10:52:00");

Creates new record in the “orders” history with fields set: (snd,tgt,ClOrdID,dest,20101010-10:52:00). The record will be deleted automatically when the ClearHistory task is executed after date-time 20101010-10:52:00.

  • If the <expireDateTime> field is not defined in the history definition, use an empty string for it in the script so that it works.
  • If the <expireDateTime> is defined in the history definition and it is an empty string, then it will be treated as NULL and the ClearHistory procedure will delete the record.
If <keyFields> is composite, then all fields in the key set should be filled.

updateHistory (<historyName>, <keyFields>, <commonFields>, <expireDateTime>)

Modifies fields in the history <historyName> with values specified in <commonFields> and <expireDateTime>. Record for update is searching by <keyFields> criteria. Returns true if the function succeeded and returns false otherwise.

Example Code:

key = new Array("snd","tgt");
common = new Array("", "dest2");
updateHistory("orders", key, common, "20121221-10:52:00");

If a record with keys set (snd, tgt) was created by the previous sample for the saveToHistory command, then the ‘dest’ field value  replaces with ‘dest2’, the ‘20101010-10:52:00’ field value replaces with ‘20121221-10:52:00’.

  • If the <expireDateTime> field is not defined in the history definition, use an empty string for it in the script so that it works.
  • If the <expireDateTime> is defined in the history definition and it is an empty string, then it will be treated as NULL and the ClearHistory procedure will delete the record.
If <keyFields> is composite, then all fields in the key set should be filled. Empty fields in <commonFields> or <expireDateTime> will not be changed.

getFromHistory (<historyName>, <keyFields>, <columnName>)

Retrieves field value in the history <historyName>. Searching criteria is the <keyFields> for a record and <columnName> for column where value reads. Returns target field value, but if such value wasn't found, returns 'undefined'.

Example Code:

key = new Array("snd","tgt");
time = getFromHistory("orders", key, "ExpireDateTime"); 
        

Returns the ‘20121221-10:52:00’ value from the record with key (snd,tgt) that has been updated by previous sample.

Notes: the column which is created by the <expireDateTime> parameter always has the “ExpireDateTime” name in a history. 
Other columns have names as described in history description in BL_Config.xml or as a tag number in string representation if the column name is absent in history description.

getRecordFromHistory (<historyName>, <keyFields>)

Retrieves fileds array from the record with key <keyFields>, located in the history <historyName>. Returns target record, but if such record wasn't found, returns 'undefined'.

Example Code:

key = new Array("snd","tgt");
record = getFromHistory("orders", key);
          print(record); 

Returns a fields array of the record with the key (snd,tgt), then prints content into log. 
The result will show “snd, tgt, ClOrdID, dest2, 20121221-10:52:00” if the record (snd, tgt) has been saved and updated by previous samples.

Notes: Empty fields have NULL values and printing represents it as “<null>”.
If <keyFields> is composite, then all fields in the key set should be filled.

removeRecordFromHistory (<historyName>, <keyFields>)

Removes entire record with key <keyFields>, located in the history <historyName>. Returns a number of deleted records.

Example Code:

key = new Array("snd","tgt");
removeRecordFromHistory("orders", key);  

Removes a record with a key (snd, tgt) from the ‘orders’ history.

Notes: If <keyFields> is composite, then all fields in the key set should be filled.

removeRecordFromHistoryByCompositeKey (<historyName>, <keyFields>)

Removes entire record by matching of composite key with <keyFields>, located in the history <historyName>. Returns a number of deleted records.

Example Code:

key = new Array("snd","");
ndeleted = removeRecordFromHistoryByCompositeKey ("orders", key);

Removes all records with keys which have first the “snd” field in a key.

Notes: the composite <keyFields> set should contain at least one field. All empty fields in a key will be ignored in searching.
