Xerces-c 2.8 (headers and dynamic libraries) is required for building the sample Handler project.
Note: as for future release of FIXEdge (5.11) xerces-c 3.1 is used then it also will be used in SDK instead of xerces-c 2.8
How to build samples
- Export a system variable pointing to the XERCES-C: export XERCESCROOT=/home/user/extlibs/xerces-c-src_2_8_0
- Create a folder for build:
$ mkdir ./build
$ cd ./build
- Run CMake:
$ cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" ../
> cmake.exe -G "Visual Studio 10 Win64" ../
- Build shared libraries:
build b2b_fixserver_development_ta.sln (Release, MD)
There are already implemented Handlers - see FIXEdge BL Handlers for more info.
Transport Adaptor is more complicated plugin. It is suited for using in following scenarios where adapting FIX Session to any other kind of session is required:
There are already implemented Transport Adaptors - see FIXEdge Transport Adaptors for more info.
reloads each time after BL Rules are reloaded
loads only if reference to Handler exists in some BL rule
|once at FE start|
|ClientID||doesn't have a ClientID. Can't be referenced by another Handler or TA.||Can register several ClientIDs|
Can be addressed from BL Rules using <HandlerAction> tag only
message is coming to process method
Messages to each of ClientID can be passed from BL <Send> tag, or from another TA or Handler.
Message is coming into sendToClient method
Can just pass original or transformed message to the BL
Can send synchronously to any registered ClientID
Can send asynchronously to any registed ClientID
Can be send to BL only via onMessageFromClient method.
onMessageFromClient can't be called from the same thread as sendToClient
|History access||has direct access to any configured on BL History||for Bridge Adaptors only (see FIXEdge Transport Adaptors Developer Guide) for more details|
|Configuration||in BL_Config.xml||in FIXEdge.properties|
