We are using a java based application. We are upgrading it to spring boot. Right now, we are using rfa 7.6.1 jar to connect to Reuters. Is there any latest version that we could migrate to?

@LanceGabriel.Villacrusis Thanks for your question - so the RFA APIs are older, feature complete APIs that are still supported but will not receive anything other than maintenance updates. The latest APIs called RT-SDK (formerly known as Elektron SDK) are much simpler (composed of a higher level message API layer for ease-of-use and a lower level transport API layer for ultra-performance) and will continue to be developed upon. I hope this can help.

According to this notification, RFA Java - 8.1.X & 7.6.X have been rebranded to Refinitiv.

API Rebranding - adapt applications post re-branding to account for namespace changes resulting in recompile, test and re-deployment of applications. Customers have until July 2021 to make the changes.

The client needs to migrate the application to use RFA Java - 8.2.0.L1 & 7.7.0.L1 or higher. The lateset versions of RFA Java are 7.8.1.L1 and 8.2.3.L1.

However, it is better to migrate the appliaction to use RTSDK as mentioned by Jason.

Hello @LanceGabriel.Villacrusis

There is a Spring Boot - EMA Java (the message API of the RTSDK that was mentioned by my colleague above) example available at GitHub https://github.com/Refinitiv-API-Samples/Article.RTSDK.Java.MDWebService repository.

I hope this information helps.
