Spotware, the company behind the popular cTrader platform, today announces the release of its brand new collection of FIX API examples using quickFIX/n library.
The new FIX API examples consist of a console application, a WinForms application, a WPF application and an ASP .Net Core application.
- Console Application
The console application is a simple tool that allows you to send instructions using FIX API messages through a command line tool and observe the exchanged FIX messages. It is an entry level example that is used to demonstrate the basic concepts behind FIX API as well the integration between FIX API and quickFIX/n library.
- WinForms Application
The WinForms application is a handy tool that features simple message exchanging between your application and FIX API. It is used to demonstrate the basic concepts behind the quickFIX/n library and it becomes very useful when it comes to debugging FIX API issues.
- WPF Application
The WPF application is a mini trading application which illustrates how you can use the FIX API to implement the basic functions of a client trading application. It includes examples of subscribing to and managing live price streams, displaying live quotes and managing orders and positions.
- ASP.Net Core Application
The ASP.Net Core Application is another mini trading application which illustrates how you can use the FIX API in a web based application.
