StreamBase Systems today announced the release of StreamBase 6.6, the latest version of its award-winning Complex Event Processing (CEP) platform at TradeTech in London. StreamBase 6.6 includes updates to the core CEP platform and the Trading System Framework.
"StreamBase has emerged as the dominant CEP firm in capital markets," said Mark Palmer, Chief Executive Officer at StreamBase. "In the last year we have experienced record growth adding CME Group, SunGard, CMC Markets and City Index to our expanding roster of public clients. StreamBase 6.6 adds some key features such as Extension Points, Component Exchange Support, Module Interfaces, and improvements in Unit Testing."
StreamBase 6.6 includes some key improvements to the underlying StreamBase CEP platform, including:
• Extension Points: StreamBase's unique "whiteboard programming" approach allows business users and IT to collaboratively build event-based applications. Version 6.6 extends the ability for business and IT users to collaborate. "Extension Points" enable logic elements designed to run at the same point of the event flow within an SB application, to be easily snapped in and configured.
• Module Interfaces: Useful to any large project or enterprise development effort where reusable modules or libraries are valuable, module interfaces enable StreamBase developers to easily define the interface to a module.
• Component Exchange Support: The first CEP developer community, StreamBase Component Exchange (SBX), was announced in 2010. StreamBase 6.6 offers drag-and-drop support for SBX via StreamBase Studio and allows for rapid access to the growing number of modules available.
• Unit Testing: StreamBase introduced a number of CEP innovations with the release of StreamBase 6.0 including Visual Debugging, Profiling and Testing tools. StreamBase 6.6 adds support for JUnit, an industry-standard and extensible alternative to the existing test facilities in StreamBase.
"StreamBase has always had a strong focus on teams where business analysts and IT developers work together to graphically develop, deploy, and evolve applications. StreamBase 6.6 further deepens this commitment by not only making StreamBase easier to use, but also by making it easier to define, debug and test components built by different team members," said Richard Tibbetts, Chief Technology Officer at StreamBase. "Time and time again we are finding that the ability to use StreamBase's graphical development environment to collaborate is a key factor in increasing the productivity of cross-functional teams in bringing applications to market in record time."
