Welcome to Documentation space for FIXEdge 5.8 - an application server providing FIX connectivity and generic smart routing to multiple clients
The FIXEdge project was started with Sun Microsystems to be marketed as a package that included two Sun servers configured in a HA cluster with the FIX Antenna C++ Sun edition pre-installed and configured. Eventually, the project grew into an autonomous selling product with a wide range of features that were not included in the original package. The FIXEdge product has been endorsed by many companies.
Client applications communicate with FIXEdge through one of multiple transport protocols (e.g. Simple Sockets, TIBCO, CORBA, HTTPs) employing transport adaptors. It is designed to be as easy as possible to install, configure, administrate and monitor trading information flows. It is written in C++ and has a performance profile suitable for the needs of all clients up to and including large sell-side institutions and large volume traders. FIXEdge comes with a rich UI for monitoring session statuses and parameters in real time.
