How to use IQFeed tick data stream into MYSQL for a Matlab Simulink trading model

My original plan to use Simulink project which was an HTML/XMLRPC server appears to be either too old or I am pretty inept on how to get this working. I am not planning to use the Matlab Database Toolbox to have an active MYSQL connection into a table of tick data. This table will be fed basically by a queue of data being streamed in by a working example of IQFeeds API with Java. Kind of basic and primitive but should work for now. If I could afford something like kdb, I would love to use it as a way to house tick data. Anyhow, I will need to revisit as this potential framework moves toward a production environment. I could replace MYSQL with SQL Server for better performance but I think it would be farily marginal unless someone shows me how to better optimize this stack.  MYSQL is also free as you know.

I could use the database connection to export to Matlab’s workspace which the the Simulink model will listen to. This is just for testing again.

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
