Simple Binary Encoding (SBE)
SBE is an OSI layer 6 presentation for encoding and decoding binary application messages for low-latency financial applications. This repository contains the reference implementations in Java, C++, and Golang.
Further details on the background and usage of SBE can be found on the Wiki.
An XSD for SBE specs can be found here
This SBE implementation is designed with work very efficiently with the Aeron messaging system for low-latency and high-throughput communications. SBE has a dependency on Agrona for its buffer implementations.

Main source code
Samples of usage
Full clean build:
Run the Java examples
$ ./gradlew runJavaExamples
Jars for the executable, source, and javadoc for the various modules can be found in
C++ Build using CMake
NOTE: Linux, Mac OS, and Windows only for the moment. See FAQ. Windows builds have been tested with Visual Studio Express 12.
First build using Gradle to generate the SBE jar.
For convenience, a script is provided that does a full clean, build, and test of all targets as a Release build.
If you are comfortable with using CMake, then a full clean, build, and test looks like:
$ mkdir -p cppbuild/Debug $ cd cppbuild/Debug $ cmake ../.. $ cmake --build . --clean-first $ ctest
First build using Gradle to generate the SBE jar and then use it to generate the golang code for testing
$ ./gradlew $ ./gradlew generateGolangCodecs
For convenience on Linux, a gnu Makefile is provided that runs some tests and containes some examples
$ cd gocode # make # test, examples, bench
