So those are the options. Downloading the source code for Active Quant is straight forward seems to load within Eclipse fine. Be aware there is no front end graphical user interface for this Java based framework. I have posted enough info on this.
Why Active Quant? I would ask more with Marketcetera or QuantLib. From my research, Active Quant is the only sample Java source code I have seen thus far. I have broken down the code and it seems straightforward by analyzing. It has straightforward configuration XML files, testing client code, and the code itself. The next question is how does it perform or how easy is it to work. That is another story.
Let’s hope that Active Quant will be smart in their online documentation. I have not seemed to install and successfully get the market feed downloading from Yahoo. I have had some success with Marketcetera which it all came down to their You Tube channel videos. I just wish Active Quant had the same type of facilities in order for developers like me to get up and running fairly quickly. We shall see once I find the time to do this.
If you can afford the eighteen hundred dollar a month Activ wants, I would imagine you might be more interested in paying your mortgage. I do understand they are fairly professional as well but I would expect that as they are even more expensive than Bloomberg.
So, my next option is Interactive Brokers as they are fairly affordable (I think) for access to their APIs and data feeds. I also have heard it can be fairly slow but that would not be a concern as this is just at a development stage for now. Let me know what you think thus far.
