SFC java API processChainElementUpdate

We're using version 3.5.6-E7 of the SFC java API.

Our client extends com.reuters.sfc.realtime.chains.general.ChainElementRecordClient.

Recently we had some problems processing a ChainElementRecordClient#processChainElementUpdate(RecordChainElement) event which notified us of a RIC name change.

We get these messages approximately 4 times a year when our futures roll over to the next quarter.

Is there a test RIC that we can listen to that has regular name changes so we can test the behavior of our client without waiting until the next futures roll which takes place in December?

It was mentioned in the SFC Java developer guide.

Chain Element Updates
In statistical chains, such as .AV.L and .NG.O, the individual elements in the chain change over time.
...

I subscribed to .AT.PA (TOP 20 BY MOVES - Euronext Paris) and got the processChainElementUpdate events.

#### processChainElementUpdate for com.reuters.sfc.realtime.chains.ServiceDefinedChainElement@538ad3e9
RecordClient reassigned from SGOB.PA to STMPA.PA
STMPA.PA.HIGH_1: +40.7550
STMPA.PA.HIGH_1: +40.7550
#### processChainElementUpdate for com.reuters.sfc.realtime.chains.ServiceDefinedChainElement@ba186cc
RecordClient reassigned from STMPA.PA to SGOB.PA
Chain update complete

This event is not the RIC name change. It indicates an update of an element in the chain.

Hi @david.oloughlin,

You can see the answer provided in this question, and subscribe to one of the instrument which is due for a name change to test your application.
