About the B2Bi trading engine

The B2Bi trading engine provides a fault-tolerant and scalable trading platform to securely process business transactions. The trading engine is adaptable to various infrastructure environments and application integration requirements. The flexible architecture supports new functions in a plug-and-play manner.

Extensibility is accomplished by abstracting key processing logic into well-defined interfaces and adopting industry-standard methodologies for platform, language, connectivity and security. New connectivity mechanisms, document types and business logic can be integrated into the B2Bi trading engine without changing the base code. Developers can extend the capabilities of the trading engine by exploiting application program interfaces and other advanced functionality.
