FINOS / FDC3 open interoperability standards implementations

Glue42 have developed an open source, vendor agnostic implementation of the FINOS/FDC3 APIs, designed to run on any/multiple buses.

Watch the webinar

On May 20th, 2019 Glue42 presented the first multi-bus/multi-host implementation of the open interoperability standards, introduced by FINOS/FDC3. Watch the video to understand the capabilities of the Glue42 open source implementation, specifically:

  • The implementation architecture
  • How to support a new bus on which the implementation can run
  • How to add a new host
  • How to build the demo system yourself
  • How to run a demo of the FDC3 app (using Morgan Stanley’s Desktop.JS, connecting to Glue42 and Refinitiv’s Eikon)
  • Explore the code

Implementations source code

The source code for the implementations, presented at the webinar is available on GitHub and includes App Directory demo launcher, FDC3 demo applications, FDC3 API implementation, Eikon Bridge, Eikon Application Provider and Plexus config.
