Migratory Data Systems releases
RMDS2Web, a ready-made adapter from Reuters RMDS to
February 12th, 2007 -- Lightstreamer and Migratory Data Systems (MDS) announced
today at MEFTEC the completion of RMDS2Web, a ready-made
adapter that brings market data from Reuters RMDS feeds
into Lightstreamer. Using RMDS2Web, customers can easily
integrate RMDS feeds with Lightstreamer, the
high-performance AJAX-Comet engine.
Streaming AJAX, also known as Comet, is a paradigm that
allows Web applications to update end-users’ displays in
real time, without reloading the Web page. With this
paradigm Lightstreamer avoids the complications of older
push solutions that require downloads on the client
(i.e. applets, plug-ins, etc.) that are becoming
increasingly unpopular as security constraints are being
"With RMDS2Web financial institutions are able to
quickly leverage the advantages of Streaming-AJAX
deployment from their existing RMDS feeds" said Mihai
Rotaru, CTO at Migratory Data Systems. "
The combination of Lightstreamer with the RMDS2Web
adapter can be seen as an optimized extension to RMDS
that delivers real-time market data over the
Internet/Intranet to any Web browser, avoiding issues
regarding firewalls and software deployment that results
in a reduced cost for data distribution. RMDS2Web and
Lightstreamer feature a native connectivity to Reuters
RMDS System via P2PS, so enabling DACS permissioning,
and the ability to subscribe simultaneously to the item
records among different RMDS services.
"Lightstreamer’s engineering team are focused on
delivering a reliable and scalable push engine with a
broad set of open APIs, leaving its partners to deliver
specific integration adapters", said Alessandro Alinone,
CTO at Lightstreamer, "MDS as a Reuters Developer
Partner have considerable experience with RMDS and were
well placed to develop a high-quality adapter."
Lightstreamer is a high-performance push/streaming
engine based on the AJAX-Comet paradigm that delivers
real-time textual data to Web browsers and to thick
applications. When using browsers as a client, nothing
is installed or downloaded (no applets or ActiveX, but
developed by the Financial Systems Integration activity
of privately held Par-Tec SpA group (founded in 1998).
In 2004 a separate company was formed within the group
as an ‘ISV’ to provide Lightstreamer 'Push' middleware
solutions for streaming real-time Market Data, or any
live information, to web browsers and custom application
clients. Lightstreamer is compatible with many browsers
on the market, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox,
Opera, Safari, etc.

demonstrations are available.
