Linux Foundation introduces new version of OpenMAMA framework
The Linux Foundation has introduced a new version of its open source messaging API with the release of OpenMAMA 2.1. The API defines a uniform messaging interface for middleware environments, hence the name OpenMAMA (Middleware Agnostic Messaging API) and was open sourced by NYSE Technologies in 2011. Version 2.1 is the first to support Windows and the OpenMAMDA (Middleware Agnostic Market Data API) extension for C++ and Java.
Originally developed for Linux environments, the framework's new version 2.1 also offers wrappers for C++ and Java that allow developers to create applications for Windows environments. Having reached the current milestone, the project now plans to provide .NET support and prepare the API for use under Solaris.
OpenMAMA 2.1.1 is available to download from the project's site and is licensed under the LGPLv2.1. OpenMAMA is a Linux Foundation Labs project whose contributors include Bank of America, EMC, Exegy, Fixnetix and NYSE Technologies as well as IBM, Tick42 and TS-Associates, which just joined.
