I am trying to run the RFA Java News Reader sample program (to process & display MRN). But during the build process, there are several errors related to missing "TibMsg" package.
com\reuters\rfa\rdc\newsreader\Headline.java:33:error:package com.reuters.tibmsg does not exist
com\reuters\rfa\rdc\newsreader\Headline.java:34:error:package com.reuters.tibmsg does not exist
Is there a working sample of the NewsReader program using the OMM libraries?
MRN is supported by OMM interfaces only. It is not supported by TibMsg interfaces so NewsReader can not be used for MRN testing; NewsReader can be used for the legacy news(N2_UBMS). As far as I know, there is no plan to have new version of NewsReader with OMM interfaces. To perform MRN testing, please use the application source code in Tutorial 11 - Request and Decode Machine Readable News
To process & display MRN, only OMM interfaces are required; "TibMsg" package is not required.
Please refer to Tutorial 11 - Request and Decode Machine Readable News which explains how to decode & process MRN using RFA Java. It also provides the example application source code which demonstrates how to process and display MRN as well. For more details of the example application, please refer to README in rfa-java-tutorials\RFA_Java_Tutorials\Tutorials\Tutorial_11
TibMsg package has been removed since RFA 8.x but it is still in RFA 7.6.x. If TibMsg interfaces are not used e.g. the application which displays MRN, I suggest you use RFA 8.x e.g. the latest RFA version 8.1.0.E2 which includes the latest fixes.
Thank you for the information about the tutorial. However, the NewsReader program is an application provided by Reuters for MRN testing. As it is developed using TibMsg interfaces, is there plan to release a new version with OMM interfaces?
