Kevin Houstoun and Rupert Smith discuss the creation of Java and .NET libraries for a FIX Protocol implementation without generating garbage in order to avoid the latency spikes associated with GC.
Kevin Houstoun helped to establish the FIX Protocol in Europe, being the designer of the FIX Repository, Co-chairs the Global Technical Committee, and is an active member of the Global Steering Committee. Rupert Smith was a contributor to the Apache Qpid implementation of AMQP and he is currently working for Rapid Addition.
Software is changing the world; QCon aims to empower software development by facilitating the spread of knowledge and innovation in the enterprise software development community; to achieve this, QCon is organized as a practitioner-driven conference designed for people influencing innovation in their teams: team leads, architects, project managers, engineering directors.
So how does it compare to the serious low-latency FIX implementations?
I would accept though that the majority of "average" users are on .NET though.
If you look there you will see that the real results for Java are not that attractive, the jitter is still there.
Where is the $1 profit?
Thanks for clarification,
