Assimilate rolls out .NET-based FIX protocol testing product

For testing, verifying and validating FIX protocol applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Assimilate Technology has rolled out Visual FIX, an integrated development system for testing, verifying, and validating FIX protocol applications. The new .NET-based system is designed for software development, QA, and connectivity teams to improve their efficiency in the development, testing, and support of electronic trading systems.

According to Assimilate, the new system’s component-oriented visual interface offers flexibility in the development of FIX protocol testing process. Its visual workflow editor allows users to mix and match components to build message processing workflows, while its code import facility allows firms to integrate their own proprietary .NET components directly into the new system’s visual environment.

The company said that the new system also includes its Foundation Components package, a suite of visual components that reportedly simplify common FIX testing activities such as scenario development, log-based regression testing, and FIX message validation.

In addition, API documentation and sample code is also provided to assist developers in creating own .NET components for the system.

Russ Curry, CEO of Assimilate, said: We designed the Visual FIX system to be the Swiss Army Knife of FIX testing.

We recognise that many firms have proprietary needs that simply can’t be accommodated by a closed system, so we designed Visual FIX around the concept of making it as easy as possible for customers to integrate their own .NET components into the system.
