FIX Edge Java is an application server providing FIX connectivity to multiple clients. Client applications communicate with FEJ through one of the multiple transport protocols (e.g. Simple Sockets, TIBCO, JMS, HTTPs) employing transport adaptors. It is designed to be as easy as possible to install, configure, administer and monitor trading information flows. It is written in Java and has a performance profile suitable for the needs of all clients up to and including large sell-side institutions and large volume traders.
