Order Change State Messages

The following trade model and set of messages describe the fields and values required to successfully change the state of an existing order, using the FX Professional Motif 2. For each of the messages below, [c] denotes that the message is sent by the client, [s] denotes that the message is sent by the server.

Client

For the front-end client, the trade model library handles the processing of these messages. Streamlink is used to send messages to the back end. For Change Active State there are two messages that the client can send:

  • the first is the message containing the order and the new state that it should change to.
  • the second message is tailored for a very specific scenario. When a change state is requested, the server normally takes a few seconds to confirm whether or not this was successful, sometimes however the time taken to process the request can take a much longer amount of time, in these cases the client must wait the entire duration of the timeout before being able to submit another order change, or generally - interact with the blotter. The second message allows the client to send a message which will cancel the timeout, from which point onwards the client can resume normal interaction with the front end again, but will need to monitor the progress of the change state via the orders blotter.

Server

For the back-end adapters, the FXIntegrationAPI consumes the client messages. The requests for Change Active State are handled by an adapter that instantiates the FXOrdersAdapter object and registers an OrderChangeActiveStateListener (See the FX Integration API documentation for more information on Adapters). The state change is handled by the FX Integration API using the ChangeState object. The object contains the Responders and Events required to transition the trade model to the final state.
