ABSTRACT This article studies current developments and trends in the area
of capital market systems. In particular, it defines the trading
lifecycle and the activities associated with it. The article then
investigates opportunities for the integration of legacy systems and
existing communication protocols through distributed integrated services
that correspond to established business processes. These integrated
services link to basic services such as an exchange, a settlement, or a
registry service. Examples of such integrated services include pre-trade
services (e.g., analytics) or post-trade services (e.g., surveillance).
The article then presents the various levels of integration in capital
market systems and discusses the standards in place. It establishes that
most interactions occur at a low level of abstraction such as the
network (e.g., TCP/IP), data format (e.g., FIX, XML), and middleware
levels (e.g., CORBA). Finally, the article discusses a software
development methodology based on the use of design patterns. These
design patterns address the essential aspects of managing integrated
services in a technology-independent fashion. These aspects are service
wrapping, service composition, service contracting, service discovery,
and service execution. The objective of the methodology is to facilitate
the rapid development of new integrated services that correspond to
emerging business opportunities

    ABSTRACT: The advent of the Internet has encouraged trading partners to collaborate electronically by leveraging the type of distributed applications usually referred to as business-to-business (B2B) applications. A review of the literature on B2B integration shows that designing B2B solutions is inherently complex because of the need to make integration design decisions at different levels of abstraction. For every decision, there may be several possible solutions offering different levels of quality. These alternatives may be offered in the form of integration approaches, patterns, models, technologies, standards, or protocols. In addition, integration design decisions and alternatives are often highly interdependent. Therefore, new approaches are needed to alleviate the design complexity of B2B applications. A framework is discussed that would help designers navigate design decisions and alternatives from early business process determination through the generation of technology-dependent integration architecture. Using patterns appropriately, the framework would enable designers to systematically evaluate and select design alternatives based on their quality attributes.

    ABSTRACT: Due to immense amounts of data being generated from financial markets in many different formats, professionals and academics face interoperability problems when analysing such data. This paper proposes a data model that gives a coherent view of the information available from financial market data repositories. The novel features of this data model include: modelling the behaviour of an electronic market as an extensible event-based class hierarchy, and using ontologies to represent financial data as a set of inter-related and meaningful events. Using this data model, we develop interoperable web services that process the data at a high level of abstraction using a Service-Oriented Architecture.
