Subject [jira] Commented: (SYNAPSE-373) Remove the BeginString (Tag 8) validation of the FIX messages
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2008 03:58:45 GMT


Hiranya Jayathilaka commented on SYNAPSE-373:

BeginString validation feature can be made optional with minimal effort. Since bridging different
types of FIX sessions is a very useful usecase we can have this feature disabled by default.

However then we must use DeliverTo* and OnBehalf* fields when there are multiple sessions
connected to the same acceptor.

>                 Key: SYNAPSE-373
>                 URL:
>             Project: Synapse
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Transports
>    Affects Versions: 1.2
>            Reporter: Asanka Abeysinghe
>            Assignee: Hiranya Jayathilaka
>            Priority: Minor
> Remove the FIX message version validation to support Synapse proxy service to bridge
two FIX endpoints with different versions. E.g. FIX.4.0 and FIX.4.1 (only compatible messages
between two versions).
> Current Synapse FIX implementation got a stopper for the above requirement because it
validates the incoming message version and the outgoing message version defined in the FIX
message header (BeginString/Tag 10).
> Validations done inside the  class org.apache.synapse.transport.fix.FIXTransportSender.
> Quickfix/j (FIX engine used in Synapse) will be doing the FIX message validations based
on the session configuration and the FIX-specification, so it is not required to do FIX validations
inside the Synapse transport layer.
> A synapse user can make messages compatible by defining proper message definitions/ FIX-specs.
