Currently, the MTS (Market Trading system) is using the Reuters API to acquire market data.
* MTS is our bank system.
Because MTS changes Java version in January 2020 due to EOS project,
I want to check whether or not it is necessary to change the Reuters API vertion.
MTS is using Reuters API's version is below.
⇒ 7.2.1.E 2
⇒ 4.10.06 _ TREP - RT
⇒ 4.10.06 _ TREP - RT - 12.91
MTS will change Java verion to "OpenJDK Version 8" in January 2020.
Do we need to change Reuters' jar file?
Yes. We strongly recommend you change Reuters API to RFA Java 8.1.0.E2 which includes the latest bug fixes. If you have any difficulties downloading the RFA package, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .RFA 7.2.1.E2 has been end of life and no longer supported. All investigation that Thomson Reuters are making here would be on the supported RFA version(RFAJ7.6 or higher) and environments e.g. JDK 1.7.x and 1.8.x. All OpenJDK Versions are not supported as well. This is mentioned in API Compatibility Matrix shown below:
To upgrade from RFA 7.2 to RFA 8.x, Please refer to RFA_Java_package\Docs\WebDocs\wwhelp\wwhimpl\js\html\wwhelp.htm in API Migration and Schedule of Deprecated Interfaces section under Documentation Portal-> Helpful Hints as shown below:
Moreover, RFA 8 also provides RDMFieldDictionary and enumtype.def e.g. version 4.20.28 (in RFA 8.1.0.E2) which are newer than version 4.10.06 you are using. Hence, you should replace your current dictionary files with the ones shipped with RFA 8.
