Exchanges need test environments in which API clients can test their applications. Typically these use the same exchange platform as used in production but with limited or no background market place data. Our simulation can enhance these test environments in the following ways:
- Generate background market place data for production equivalent test platform
Our market place simulation can inject background trading data into the test platform so that API testers can test within a realistic environment. The exchange operator can specify the profile of the background market place data which will be used by all API testers.
- Supply a simulated exchange platform
With a fully simulated platform, API testers could select the type of background market place data. While such an environment would not as accurately replicate the production platform, it would allow API testers to test against a large variety of market conditions.
