Eurex Clearing Readiness Newsflash | C7 Release 6.1: Update of publications, FIXML broker migration

Eurex Clearing Readiness Newsflash

Dear Clearing Member,

We would like to draw your attention to the following updates for C7 Release 6.1, which is scheduled to go live on 29 June 2020 with simulation commencing on 4 May 2020.

This Newsflash provides information regarding the below topics:

1. Documentation update
2. FIXML broker migration

1. Documentation update

The following C7 Release 6.1 documents have been updated on the Eurex Clearing website:

  • Eurex Clearing XML Reports - Reference Manual
  • Eurex Clearing XML Reports - Modification Notes
  • Eurex Clearing XML Reports - XML Schema Files   

These documents can be found under the following path:

2. FIXML broker migration

Please note that in chapter 3.4 of the Eurex Clearing C7 Release 6.1 Release Notes, it was announced that the FIXML broker will migrate from C++ to Java in June 2020.

However, given the recent high-volume days, we have been approached by our Members to provide technical enhancements to improve the system performance. The requested technical enhancements will be delivered later this year, further details and a timeline will be communicated later in April 2020.

Consequently, the broker migration will be pushed to the second half of 2020. To minimise Member impact, the broker migration will be bundled together with the announced simulation focus days and the requested technical enhancements (optional for Members). 

We request Members who are on the outdated AMQP version 0-10 to migrate to the 1-0 version.

Kind regards,

Your Client Services Team
