Bolsa Comercio Santiago FIX Adapter

Using the Adapter

The Bolsa Comercio Santiago (BCS) FIX adapter allows a StreamBase application to connect to the trading infrastructure provided by the BCS, and to exchange FIX messages with it.

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

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

  • Authentication material:

    If your BCS account requires authentication material to be included when logging in, you must specify this material in the adapter's configuration file.

    • QuickFIX/J engine: Add Authenticate=RawData provided by BCS entry either in the session-specific section or the [DEFAULT] section of the file.

    • For StreamBaseFIX configuration files, add a <raw-data>MyBSCPassword</raw-data> entry in each <session> section that represents a Trading Technologies session.

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