The Caplin RET Adapter Toolkit contains classes that enable you to create a suite of integration adapters that integrate a Refinitiv Electronic Trading system with the Caplin Platform.
Each adapter class is designed to integrate a specific set of RET functionality or data into a Caplin Platform environment. The classes handle the translation of RET messages into Caplin message specifications and vice versa, as well as handling other business logic.
Here’s a list of the adapter classes:
Calendar Adapter - Used to provide Tenor dates and Settlement dates when setting up trades.
FX Trading Adapter - Used to facilitate FX trading with functions that include ESP and RFS using a RET-AD system.
LBN Adapter - Used to provide historic blotter data detailing the user’s open (active) and executed deals.
Order Adapter - Used to set up Order tickets, and to provide Orders functionality.
Pricing Adapter - Used to deliver streaming prices (rates) via a RET-AD system.
Permissioning Adapter - Provides a permissions framework for use with Caplin Platform data, as well as providing an integration point for an external permissions service.
Director Permissioning Adapter - Used to integrate with Caplin Director (an Administration tool) - replacing the standard Permissioning Adapter.
Common Config Adapter - Used to configure an Activity Blotter to receive data from the Order Adapter, as well as from the FX Trading Adapter.
