The Eikon Web& Scripting API looks very nice and I'd like to use it. However, I'm not too keen on Python as I do all my code in Java.
Is there any chance of getting access to the JSON API underneath? I thought about placing a logging proxy between the python code and the "Web Proxy," but since that would require changing port numbers in the python library, and some trial and error, I figured that I'd try the front door and ask first :)
API wise, I'm looking to download historical time series data -- for example, the daily closing value of the VIX index.
I can certainly contribute any Java library that I come up with to a Git project (Eikon Web Scripting Java API Project) if you guys set one up. I'm not looking to be a maintainer or anything like that, just hoping to be selfish in the sense that it would be less work for me if your eventual Java API ends up similar to what I come up with :)
