This page describes how to install the TREP Adapter.
To deploy the TREP Adapter, you require the following:
TREP Adapter installation kit (
Caplin Deployment Framework 7
To ease log-file analysis across servers, time zones, and daylight savings transitions, we recommend that you set the system clocks of all hosts in a Caplin stack to UTC.
Deploying the adapter
Follow the steps below to deploy the TREP Adapter:
Copy the installation kit (
CPB_TREPAdapter-<version>.zip) to your Deployment Framework’s
From the root of your deployment framework, run the command below to stop all running components in the Deployment Framework:
From the root of your deployment framework, run the command below to deploy the TREP Adapter:
Run the command below to specify the hostnames of the primary and secondary server on which the adapter should run (for more information on this command, see dfw hosts):
./dfw hosts TREPAdapter <primary-server> <secondary-server>
If you are installing the adapter on a developer’s machine, you can specify
localhostfor both the primary and secondary servers:
./dfw hosts TREPAdapter localhost localhost
Configuring the adapter
Before starting the adapter, make the following minimum configuration changes to the file
upa-address hostname_or_IP_address upa-port port
If the TREP Adapter requires a username to connect to TREP, specify it with the upa-username configuration item.
If you want the TREP Adapter to supply historical charting data to Transformer’s Charting Service, then deploy the TS1 Decoder Service to Transformer. The TS1 Decoder Service transforms TS1 charting data served by the TREP Adapter into a format that the Charting Service can consume.
Generating DataSource field definitions for Refinitiv fields
After deploying the TREP Adapter for the first time, and after deploying any new version of the TREP Adapter, follow the instructions in Generating DataSource field definitions to update the
fields-reuters.conf file with field definitions for Refinitiv fields.
Starting and stopping the adapter
To start the adapter, run the command below from the root directory of your Deployment Framework:
./dfw start TREPAdapter
To stop the adapter, run the command below from the root directory of your Deployment Framework:
./dfw stop TREPAdapter
