The Open Source Java Solution for FIXatdl

atdl4j is an open source and not-for-profit Java implementation of FIXatdl, the FIX Protocol Algorithmic Trading Definition Language standard developed by FIX Protocol Limited (FPL).

Running the testing apps:

FIX Engine Integration

Please note that atdl4j is NOT a FIX engine for sending and receiving orders over the wire. Rather, atdl4j draws order entry screens from FIXatdl templates and gets/sets their FIX parameter values.

If you are intending to implement a full-stack trading system with FIX order capability, you will additionally require a FIX engine such as the open-source QuickFIX/J.
