Next Generation Trading (NGT) is a key initiative by Sun’s financial services segment in cooperation with leading ISVs that offer innovative financial market solutions. NGT demonstrates an alternative way to provide powerful trading solutions without the burden of excessive power consumption under each trader’s desk. As part of this initiative Lightstreamer will be demonstrating2 both with Sun and on its own booth the "Streaming AJAX"3 solution for Real-Time data delivery with zero client install.
"Lightstreamer is a high-performance publish/subscribe middleware based on HTTP, tuned to efficiently push real-time data to any kid of client, both ‘thick’ and ‘thin’ " said Alessandro Alinone, CTO of Lightstreamer. "Now Lightstreamer brings the Streaming-AJAX (aka Comet) paradigm to Sun’s Next Generation Trading platform with Real-Time market data for Thin-Client Trading platforms.”
"Through continued momentum with our partners, Sun recognizes the value of a comprehensive NGT approach to meet the ever-changing needs of traders with enhanced technology,” said Donna Rubin, senior director, worldwide financial services, Sun Microsystems. “The implementation of Lightstreamer with Java, permits traders to focus on maintaining their competitive advantage, while the Lightstreamer server allows for continual access to real time information."
