Active Quant p2 and the VMWare appliance is challenging but challenges Marketcetera for true open source algo trading
I would like to mention that contributors and founders of Active Quant have proceeding in updating this quant based open source project. It appears that some users thought this project died and was not getting updated. As of Feb 2010, this new major update looks like the project has relevancy still.
Active Quant P2 appears to be a new project which enables complete algo based trading. There is not real front end to it but it gives developers like me a leg up to use a framework to start integrating with other systems I have access to or plan to build. All of these of course are built in Java which might give some efficiency for certain quant developers. I just use as learning ground.
Also, there seems to be a VMWare appliance available for download which I tried. This VMware appliance is build off of Debian 5 which is the purest Linux distribution out there. It is also probably one of the most light weight to. I tried this appliance but it appears to have a download link which is missing. It seems that there was an update but other projects are missing including the GUI part of Active Quant P2. The problem is the scant documentation. If there will be serious traction with this project, the founders will need to radically improve all these links and documents. It can be very frustrating for someone like but there those of us who are very dedicated to accomplish our goals. One is definitely learning about algo based trading and quant analytics.
If you have the time to dedicate, you might want to forge ahead with this type of development. Uh, what more can I say??
