FIXICC H2 is the next generation of FIX Integrated Control Center (FIXICC). FIXICC H2 is a web-based application accessible via the browser. It is designed to administer, configure and monitor the FIXEdge line of products, including standalone and clusters of FIX engines.

It uses REST API to access and control FIXEdge. It uses a database to store and manage FIX sessions' configurations and schedules.

FIXICC H2 is easy to deploy and update. FIXICC H2 distribution kit consists of one .jar file. FIXICC H2 is extendible and customizable:

  • FIXICC H2 is designed for different database management systems
  • FIXICC H2 relies on Service Discovery of the FEJ service to find and monitor servers and their health
  • FIXICC H2 allows customizing UI theme
