The ACTIV APIs are perhaps the most advanced, modern, and thorough interface to market data available anywhere. These lightweight libraries are available in C++, Java and C# and are supported on over 30 OS/Compiler combinations including 32 & 64-bit versions of Windows, Solaris, and Linux. Through the Content Gateway individual subscription watch lists are retrievable by a powerful set of methods including single instrument, wildcard, exchange, or entire asset classes.
ACTIV has never deprecated an API...This means there are no forced migrations as new features are added to the service.
The ACTIV APIs are packaged in a comprehensive Software Developer Kit (SDK) including:
Documentation and Sample Code - Complete API documentation and high-quality samples that can be used as templates for your own applications. APIs and samples are available in C#, C++, and Java. Samples come both pre-compiled as well as with full source code.
Online Knowledge Base & FAQs - ACTIV's developer support team manages a comprehensive online support site complete with full reference materials and comprehensive library of Frequently Asked Questions. Most questions can be answered quickly through the full-text search engine.
Developer Support - Should you not be able to find the answers you need in the documentation or support site, clients and partners have access to email, telephone and web support from real system developers.
