Barclays Provides Clients with Gator Aid

Fixspec: The connectivity company is providing a multi-venue certification utility for the trading community. The utility gives developers the ability to make an Internet connection to an interactive FIX service designed to replicate the message formats of a FIX counterparty such as an exchange or broker. Available all day, every day, developers can connect to the service on their own convenience, manually perform actions such as execute orders and cancel trades, and test their code against a certification script; all without needing to book a formal testing slot with the counterparty, saving a lot of wasted time for both parties.
Fixspec offers a service to the issuers of FIX specifications to set up and maintain the service for a fixed subscription fee.
