See 'Internet Trading System' for the latest ETS paradigm (ETS 2002)
To design and implement an Internet Electronic Trading System for the Futures, Spreads, Swaps, Options and Product Cracks Commodity markets|
The system utilises object-orientated analysis and design techniques in a C++ and Java environment
Proprietary message orientated middleware to deliver multi-tier, distributed solutions running on both NT and Unix platforms
The primary GUI Client consisted of a Visual C++ MFC based Multiple Document Interface application,
exploiting MFC Threading using the support technologies such as COM and ATL, with Stingray (RougeWave) Objective Grid at its core, connecting to IBM AIX Unix Servers written largely in C++.
The middleware tier consists of low-level message wrapper classes that pass updates to the core API object (ATL/STL)
business lists that in turn pass the abstracted data from the API DLL to the GUI presentation layer as an object.
The essence of the design is a sophisticated implementation of the MFC method: UpdateAllViews().
Additional support provided for the IBM Web Sphere : Price Display Client written in Java and HTML
Unix Server Processes|
These Unix Processes were enhanced as part of a collective team effort under my direction.
Ancillary GUI applications such as Back Office Interface and Price Reporting Service Interface (with ITC2 Format)
used the middleware API to further distribute Market, Order and Trade information to external services (such as Reuters)
The subsequent release of the product on Friday 14th September 2001 was via the Citrix Web Server and Client methodology over the internet.
(10 WebServers 8 processors per server and 2000 licenses) and an upgrade to Tolarian Smart Sockets.
The Java and Win32 model employed is online at http://www.montegodata.co.uk/Services/jsw_model.htm
Additional support provided for the IBM WebSphere : Price Display Client written in Java and HTML.
Supplied the traders with various additional sophisticated derivative model pricing spreadsheets (see Pricing Tools below).
Java (J2EE) Upgrade To Trading System
A reasonable Unix to NT port of these C/C++ Servers allows for a standalone demonstration of the major component suite.
Remote contract works in 2002 allowed the opportunity to create a web browser trading client running under the Apache Web Server (JSP usage) with Java J2EE components (Servlets, EJB) as middleware, which connects to the primary servers as a "TSI Service".
It is possible to show the vanilla Visual C++ Win32 Client running side-by-side with any of:
(a) Java Jar application, (b) Java Jar applet or (c) Java Script Client.
The Java Jar application Client using Swing has a comparable speed performance compared to the native Win32 Client.
The Java (J2EE) middleware is essentially part of a 'n-tier' project that can be used as Client/Server.

|To design and implement a Web Trading Services for Traders in the Oil, Gas, Metal and Electric Market for Futures, Options, Spreads, Cracks, Swaps.|
The primary goal was to release the Exchange from am expensive paradigm of middleware Citrix Servers and Citirx Client licenses. Support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher.
|Continuation of support for the existing Citirx Web Servers running under Windows 2000 and connecting to IBM Unix AIX Server.|
To provide a Web server design connecting to Java Middleware (Borland J Builder) connecting to remote clients
To ensure inter-operability with the existing three tier paradigm

To design and implement an Electronic Trading System for the energy market (Options/Futures/Spreads on Commodities) The Client/Server Model utilised Sybase 11 on an AIX Unix Server connected to a Visual C++ GUI Front End (used this Stingray based Client in Manhattan for Nymex). The Back End consisted of a number of component processes that messaged via Sockets.
