STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- B2B ITS Corp. has released
.FIXantenna(TM) Engine -- the first open source FIX Engine, offered under
Apache-style license. This event propels FIX, a message protocol used to
communicate securities transactions among financial institutions, as an open
industry standard by giving it open reference implementation. It is now
available for download at http://fix.btobits.com.
B2B ITS Corp's .FIXantenna(TM) Engine release coincides with the launch of
its .FIXantenna(TM), a suite of FIX protocol related products for the
financial services industry. In addition to the FIX Engine, .FIXantenna(TM)
includes additional external CORBA services and a FIX Message Browser. These
software tools are 100% Java and have unique features which make them highly
flexible and universal. Designed with Internet usage in mind, .FIXantenna(TM)
products can be used beyond the traditional functions of FIX and can be
applied in online trading. .FIXantenna(TM) is the first portal that provides
users with a wide range of testing possibilities. A UML schema of FIX
sessions is also available for download.
Alexander Mologoko, CTO of B2B ITS Corp., explains the company's decision
to release .FIXantenna(TM) Engine as open source. "We stand for an open source
approach and believe that our company's profit will come from selling our
services and expertise, not from selling the product itself. Furthermore, an
open source FIX Engine will have positive effects on the efforts to further
standardize FIX specification and help catapult its use on the Internet in
light weight trading applications."
The intuitive .FIXantenna(TM) Engine easily integrates with legacy
financial systems, making the systems FIX-enabled. It has component
architecture based on CORBA, allowing for integration with non-Java
applications, and making it possible to build any number of configurations to
