  • For a list of general prerequisites, see Prerequisites to Start the ESB Samples.
  • To configure the ESB to use the FIX transport, see Configure the ESB to use the FIX transport.
  • You will need the two sample FIX applications (Banzai and Executor) that are provided with Quickfix/J. Configure the two applications to establish sessions with the ESB.
  • Add the following lines line to the fix-synapse-m40.cfg and synapse-sender-m.cfg configuration files.

    Code Block

    The FIX40-synapse.xml file can be found in the <ESB_HOME>/repository/samples/resources/fix directory. This is a custom FIX data dictionary file that adds the tag 150 and 151 to the execution message(35=8) of FIX4.0. Make sure the DataDictionary property in the banzai.cfg file points to this data dictionary file.

  • Add the following lines to executor.cfg, which is the Executor configuration file:

    Code Block
  • Start Banzai and Executor using the custom configuration files.
  • You need to use two custom configuration files for the ESB in this sample. The two custom configuration files can be found in the <ESB_HOME>/repository/samples/resources/fix directory. The two files are fix-synapse-m40.cfg and synapse-sender-m.cfg. You need to point your ESB configuration to these two files (this is already done in the provided synapse_sample_261.xml file) or you should create copies of them and point the ESB configuration to the copies. In either case, make sure that the properties FileStorePath and FileLogPath in the two files point to valid locations in your local file system.
  • Open the <ESB_HOME>/repository/samples/synapse_sample_261.xml file and make sure that the transport.fix.AcceptorConfigURL property points to the fix-synapse-m40.cfg file and the transport.fix.InitiatorConfigURL property points to the synapse-sender-m.cfg file. 


    The ESB creates a new FIX session with Banzai at this point.
