FIX Client Simulator 3.8 release: Improved access to repeating groups and their elements

B2BITS, EPAM Systems company is pleased to announce the release of FIX Client Simulator (FCS) 3.8.

FIX Client Simulator 3.8 introduces the following features and improvements:

Microsoft Teams -image (1)FCS provides the ability to select an incoming Order Single (35=D) message in the Events Viewer section and automatically form an Execution Report (35=8) with 39=8 to send in a running Initiator or Acceptor session (reject).

  • Improved access to repeating groups and their elements.

When working on test scenarios at the stages "Expect", "Expect Until", and "ExpectThenSend", the tags that go into specific repeating groups can already be validated, not just based on a particular tag but also with an asterisk (*) instead of 0,1,2, etc.

 Microsoft Teams -image

  •  Automatic distribution of a set quantity across multiple execution reports.

 Starting from version 3.8, FCS has aBalance quantitiescheckbox that allows the automatic population of the 32, 14, 151 tags in "Partial Fill" and "Fill" messages to maintain balance with quantities.

  • Set time the delay property for a message.

 Version 3.8, allows you to manually configure the delays between messages using the "With random delay from-to seconds" command Parameter. Additionally, the random delay interval can be set up with minimum and maximum values, and fractional values are possible for seconds.
