SolutionForge has launched an adapter for its FIX/FIXML engine, FIX.NET Server, to work with Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004. The adapter enables prospective users of Microsoft’s BizTalk Server 2004, to interface with trading infrastructures based on the FIX protocol. The product is due to go live shortly at Danish banking services firm Bankdata, which has recently implemented SolutionForge’s FIX.NET Server FIX engine. The Bankdata project will provide FIX capabilities to the firm’s mainframe-based banking solution. FIX.NET Server supplies the FIX messaging and FIXML conversion, while BizTalk Server 2004 provides business logic, including the conversion of FIXML messages to and from the mainframe application’s internal formats, said SolutionForge.
