QuickFIX/N

Build status

For tutorials on how to use QuickFIX/n, visit the website.

This README is about setting up your system to do QuickFIX/n development.

System Setup

This project requires the following:

To build

  • Ruby (1.9.3 recommended) (used to generate message and field classes from the DataDictionary xml file)
  • Visual Studio 2010 or higher

To run tests

Code Generation

To regenerate the message and field class source from the Data Dictionaries, you need Ruby and the Nokogiri gem:

gem install nokogiri -v 1.6.8.1
generate.bat

(Nokogiri versions 1.7+ require Ruby 2.0, so we must use this older version.)

Build

To build the project, run:

build.bat

You can also override the default target, configuration, and .NET framework version by giving command line arguments:

build.bat Rebuild Release v3.5

The build.bat script expects MSBuild.exe to be on your PATH. If you run it from a Visual Studio cmd shell, this should not be a problem. However, if you run it from some other shell (e.g. cygwin), you may need to append something like:

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319

to your PATH environment variable. (Note, this build tools dir does not mean that the project will build for .NET 4.0; these are merely the build tools that come with VS 2010.)

Unit Tests

To run the NUnit tests, run:

unit_test.bat

(This script expects nunit-console.exe to be on your PATH. You may have to append something like C:\Program Files\NUnit 2.6.1\bin to your PATH environment variable.)

An HTML report of the test results will then be available here:

UnitTests\bin\Release\UnitTests.html

To run a Unit Test in the debugger (not sure if it works in VS Express):

  1. Right-click UnitTests project, click 'Properties'
  2. Go to Debug tab
  3. Change Start Action to 'Start external program: C:\Program Files\NUnit 2.6.1\bin\nunit.exe' (change the path to what is appropriate for your system)
  4. Set your 'Command line arguments' to 'C:\dev\quickfixn\UnitTests\bin\Debug\UnitTests.dll' (change the path to what is appropriate for your system)
  5. Set your 'Working directory' to 'C:\dev\quickfixn\UnitTests\bin\Debug' (change the path to what is appropriate for your system)
  6. Open NUnit in debugger as follows: Right-click UnitTests, choose Debug->Start New Instance
  7. NUnit GUI will open and VS will be in debugger mode. You can choose and run tests. If you recompile, you may need to close and relaunch NUnit.

Acceptance Tests

To run the full suite of acceptance tests:

acceptance_test.ps1

An HTML report of the test results will then be available here:

AcceptanceTests\AcceptanceTests.html

To run one particular acceptance test, e.g. fix42\14e_IncorrectEnumValue.def:

cd AcceptanceTest
runat.ps1 release 5003 definitions\server\fix42\14e_IncorrectEnumValue.def cfg\at_42.cfg

(See acceptance_test.ps1 for the proper port numbers and config files to use in the above command.)

The test results will then be available in AcceptanceTests\TestResults.xml and debug information will be available in the AcceptanceTests\log directory.

To run a test with the debugger,

  1. Open the solution file in Visual Studio
  2. Right click on "AcceptanceTest" project and choose "Properties" from the menu
  3. Click "Debug" on the left hand nav bar
  4. Set "Command line arguments" to the relevant "cfg\at_XX.cfg" for your test
  5. Set the working directory to "[yourpath]\quickfixn\AcceptanceTest"
  6. Save the properties
  7. Right click the "AcceptanceTest" project, go to Debug -> Start New Instance
  8. In command terminal, go into "AcceptanceTest" directory
  9. Run: ruby Runner.rb 127.0.0.1 5001 definitions\server\fix42\YourTestName.def
