RMDS (RFA) Engine Overview

The RTW RMDS (RFA) engine is based on the data-neutral, thread-aware Robust Foundation API (RFA) C++ Edition and provides a powerful, fast solution for users who want to subscribe, publish and contribute market data with RMDS.

The RTW RMDS (RFA) Engine introduces the concept of sessions. Sessions are a way to specify the various types of RMDS connections you may have. Where appropriate, the RTW RMDS (RFA) dialogs will contain a Session field. If the session field is left empty (default), then the default session will be used as specified in the RTW configuration file called rtconfig. If no default session is specified in the rtconfig file, then 'RTWSession' is considered the default session.

Prior to working with the RTW RMDS (RFA) engine, the engine needs to be setup and configured for your specific environment. Vistasource strongly recommends that a system administrator or experienced user is performing these tasks. For more information, see RMDS (RFA) Engine Configuration.
