Genesis API question / Programming question

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by WhiteOut56, Mar 1, 2011.

  1. I see Genesis has a version of their API in .net but is written in C#.

    I would like to use the API using Is this possible to do and if so how hard?

  2. the genesis .net api does not work completely, their example crashes and has problems. when we asked genesis about this they said they didn't have clients using that, most clients used their GTP messaging protocol directly over IP.... but barring that you should use their c++ api.

    Rather than go through all this, it would be much simpler just to use tradelink which supports genesis c++ api already and includes the source code.

    In one of the closed issues on the site, you will also find a tradelink connector for genesis GTP protocol submitted by a member of the tradelink community.
