In its traditional financial domain, and across an increasingly broad range of industries, one of the main strengths of kdb+ is its flexibility in integrating and communicating with external systems. This adoption-enhancing feature is facilitated through a number of interfaces, including C and Java APIs, ODBC support, HTTP and WebSockets.
In the latest Kx technical whitepaper, C API for kdb+, it is illustrated how the C API can be used to enable a C program to interact with a kdb+ process, and thereby leverage the real-time streaming and processing strengths of kdb+. The paper includes multiple working code samples, made available for reference and reuse on GitHub, which cover a broad range of common use cases – including publishing data to, and consuming data from, kdb+ instances.
