Hello @it.rmds.support

1.What is the difference between rfaj7.X and rfaj 8.X?

rfaj7.X supports:

  • MarketData, TibMsg interface(Marketfeed data format; SSL connection which default port is 8101)
  • OMM interface (OMM data format; RSSL connection which default port is 14002).

rfaj8.x removes the legacy interfaces, MarketData and TibMsg. It supports OMM interface only.

2.What does L1/L2/E2 signify in the version number?

L1/L2; the “L” is Normal Release package. The package is for a new feature, many maintenance, and fixes. The full set of testing is tested against the software.

E2; the “E”/“E-load” is Emergency Release package. The package is the emergency release fixes for the urgent specific problem. Only the fixed issued are tested. A full set of regression testing is not tested due to the time-critical nature of an E-Load.

For details of changes in each RFA version, please refer to README in the package.

Anyway, both L and E packages are fully supported by Refinitiv. Please refer to API COMPATIBILITY MATRIX showing RFA products compatibilities that Refinitiv currently supports.

Hope this help.
