TorQ is a framework which forms the basis of a production kdb+ system by implementing some core functionality and utilities on top of kdb+, allowing developers to concentrate on the application business logic. We have incorporated as many best practices as possible, with particular focus on performance, process management, diagnostic information, maintainability and extensibility. TorQ incorporates a suite of processes which are required in the majority of kdb+ environments. TorQ vastly reduces the time-to-market of any kdb+ implementation.
This open source package has been designed as a convenient way for web clients to make requests to a kdb+ instance using the JSON format. The package can be easily integrated with Swagger UI, Docker and standard authentication methods such as SSO, allowing users to easily implement the package with their current set up. Database security can also be improved by only allowing certain requests to be run against a kdb+ instance and by setting additional permissions based on the username of the requester.
TorQ Connectors allow simple integration with many commonly used market data providers and include appropriate data schemas set up in TorQ out of the box to capture and store data (EOD files or streaming data feeds).
Core functionality such as message parsing and connection logic is standardized across the Connectors.
The Connectors are deigned to act as a development kit, in most cases extending the libraries provided by the relevant market data vendors.
The current set of available TorQ Connectors is listed below:
