FIX (Financial Information eXchang) transport implementation is a module developed under the Apache Synapse project. This transport is mainly used with WSO2 ESB in conjunction with proxy services. Class org.apache.synapse.transport.fix.FIXTransportListener acts as the transport receiver whereas the org.apache.synapse.transport.fix.FIXTransportSender acts as the transport sender implementation. These classes can be found in the synapse-fix-transport.jar file. The transport implementation is based on Quickfix/J open source FIX engine and hence the following additional dependencies are required to enable the FIX transport.

  • mina-core.jar
  • quickfixj-core.jar
  • quickfixj-msg-fix40.jar
  • quickfixj-msg-fix41.jar
  • quickfixj-msg-fix42.jar
  • quickfixj-msg-fix43.jar
  • quickfixj-msg-fix44.jar
  • slf4j-api.jar
  • slf4j-log4j12.jar

Download Quickfix/J and in the distribution archive you will find all the dependencies listed above. Also please refer to Quickfix/J documentation on configuring FIX acceptors and initiators.

FIX transport does not support any global parameters. All the FIX configuration parameters should be specified at service level.
