How to connect to refinitiv from java

Hi There,

I'm trying to connect to the refinitiv api using java.

I would like to see if there is any way(api endpoint) I could pass in a set of tickers and the endpoint would return part of the ticker's information, let's say last price, gain/loss, etc.

I'm following the examples from here: https://developers.refinitiv.com/en/api-catalog/refinitiv-real-time-opnsrc/rt-sdk-java/tutorials#ema-consumer-introduction, but all of them seems to try to connect to a local 'server'/runtime (elektron).

Hello @trevor.mottl

Please refer to the EMA Java QuickStart - Connecting to the Refinitiv Real-Time - Optimized page. The suggested example is the ex450_MP_QueryServiceDiscovery demo application in the package:

Note: If you are using the latest version of the SDK, you can ignore the keystore file and keypasswd parameters.

There are also the following videos on the Video Catalog page that also help you.

  • 7 Minutes to connect to ERT in Cloud using Elektron Message API Java Sample
  • 30 minutes to create a Real-Time Optimized consumer application | EMA Java

You can contact your Refinitiv Representative regarding the Real-Time Optimized access credentials. Once you receive the welcome email from the system, you can follow the "Getting Started for Machine ID" section of the Getting Start with Refinitiv Data Platform article to set up your password and app key.
