Cloud-based financial market data provider Xignite today released new Software Development Kits (SDKs) for Java and .NET on GitHub for immediate use by clients, prospects and financial technology developers.
The company will debut the new SDKs today at the FinDEVr conference in San Francisco.
Xignite was an early pioneer for REST-based APIs for real-time, reference and historical financial market data. With more than 1,000 firms embedding its APIs in thousands of websites, mobile applications and enterprise software, Xignite APIs serve and touch millions of institutional and retail users around the world.
FinTech developers will find it even easier to quickly build and deliver innovative financial applications to market by using those new toolkits for Java and .NET. The Xignite .NET and Java SDKs include all classes, enumerations and inline documentation for all Xignite APIs. Some of the key features and benefits include:
• No setup needed
• Simplifies authentication
• In-line access to API documentation via IntelliSense
• Xignite API integration in three lines of code or less
• Support for asynchronous calls via async
• Configurable API token and time-out values provided by app.config
“FinTech developers care most about speed and time to market and they don’t want to deal with complex and obscure APIs,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite. “Our new SDKs give our customers relief from some of the more common frustrations associated with building new solutions, including the time consuming process of wading through documentation. We are committed to enabling and inspiring innovation and product ingenuity by constantly looking for ways to make the development process easier for developers.”
