Morningstar Quotes Feed Adapter Sample

This sample demonstrates the use of the TIBCO StreamBase® Adapter for Morningstar Quotes Feed with Interactive feeds in one sample application and Broadcast feeds in another. See Morningstar Quotes Feed Input Adapter for details on the use and structure of this adapter.

For simplicity, the Interactive sample focuses on one security type. The sample is oriented to FOREX, and therefore has FOREX specific fields defined in the QuoteSchema. The principles around configuration, field naming, and such are the same for all security types. If you are interested in security types other then FOREX, you must configure different or additional fields in the data Schemas. Similarly, the Broadcast sample is oriented to equities, so the schemas are defined for this security type.

The file MSFieldDictionary.csv is provided in this sample to show what a field dictionary looks like in general, and to show the default field ID to name mapping used by the Morningstar Quotes Feed adapter. The field dictionary has a complete list of field IDs, not just fields of interest to FOREX or equities. The file MSFieldDictionary.csv is not used in the sample application, but you could use it by configuring the Field Dictionary property.

Note

To run this sample, you must have access to a Morningstar Quotes server, and must configure the adapter icon in the sample with your server's address and port number, and with your Morningstar user name and password.

Running This Sample in StreamBase Studio

To run the Interactive feed sample:

  1. In the Project Explorer, double-click to open the morningstar-interactive.sbapp application. Make sure the application is the currently active tab in the EventFlow Editor.

  2. Select the Morningstar Quotes Feed adapter and select the Adapter Properties tab. Fill in the required information with your user name and password, and the server address and port.

  3. Click the Run button. This opens the Test/Debug perspective and starts the application.

  4. Look for Admin messages every 10 seconds. These are keepalive messages sent by the Quote server.

  5. This sample ships with Interactive feed type selected, so you have to send a SymbolRequest command to see data flow. Select the Feed Simulations tab, select the initialize-interactive.sbfs feed simulation, and click Run. This subscribes to a foreign exchange symbol.

  6. When done , press F9 or click the Stop Running Application button.

To run the Broadcast feed sample:

  1. In the Project Explorer, double-click to open the morningstar-broadcast.sbapp application. Make sure the application is the currently active tab in the EventFlow Editor.

  2. Select the Morningstar Quotes Feed adapter and select the Adapter Properties tab. Fill in the required information with your user name and password, and the server address and port.

  3. Click the Run button. This opens the Test/Debug perspective and starts the application.

  4. Since a Broadcast feed defaults to immediately sending all data you are entitled to see, you should start to see data flowing in the Application Output tab.

  5. You can send the Morningstar Broadcast server a message to only send data for select markets. Select the Feed Simulations tab, select the initialize-broadcast.sbfs feed simulation, and click Run. You may need to edit the commands-broadcast.csv depending on what markets you are entited to see.

  6. When done , press F9 or click the Stop Running Application button.
