Lime FIX Adapter

This adapter is deprecated in this release. The adapter does not appear in the Adapters, Java Operators list in StreamBase Studio unless you enable Show deprecated Global Operators/Adapters option in Studio Preferences.

Using the Adapter

The TIBCO StreamBase® Adapter for Lime Brokerage allows a StreamBase application to connect to a Lime FIX venue, and to exchange FIX messages with it.

Because this adapter uses the FIX protocol to communicate with a Lime FIX venue, its user-visible functionality is nearly identical to that of the StreamBase FIX adapter. See the FIX Adapter page for primary instructions on configuring and using the Lime FIX adapter.

The Lime FIX adapter has the following differences, compared to the FIX adapter:

  • Username, Password, and CancelAllOnDisconnect

    Because Lime FIX venues require a username and optional password to be included at logon, you must specify these values in the configuration file used by the adapter. You can also specify whether outstanding orders are automatically canceled when the FIX connection is lost.

    Add the following entries either in the session-specific section or the [DEFAULT] section of the QuickFIX/J configuration file:


    You can optionally add one of the following entries either to the session-specific section or the [DEFAULT] section:



  • StreamBaseFIX engine:

    Add the following sections to your session's <session> tag of the StreamBaseFIX configuration file:


    You can optionally add one of the following section to the same tag:




As shipped with StreamBase software, this adapter can use the QuickFIX/J FIX engine and the TIBCO StreamBase® High-Performance FIX Engine. The QuickFIX/J FIX engine is included in TIBCO StreamBase distributions. The TIBCO StreamBase High-Performance FIX Engine is available as a separate product.
