Derivatives software vendor Ironbark has begun alpha testing of a new FpML developer toolkit, Swap Objects for the .NET platform.
Swap Objects, which has been designed to meet FpML version 2.0 recommendations, is built on top of Microsoft's .NET Framework and supports 20 development languages including C#, Managed C++, Visual Basic, COM, Smalltalk and Eiffel.
In addition to XML support, Swap Objects also supports the standard Web protocols including SOAP, HTTP, TCP, UDP and .NET Remoting, Microsoft's replacement for DCOM.
The toolkit, consisting of a framework of over 100 distinct components for building OTC derivatives applications, is scheduled for launch later this month.
London-based Ironbark is directed by Australian national James Battle, an FpML development specialist who has worked on Swapswire and at BNP Paribas.
