The FIX Repository represents the raw data behind the FIX® specification in "database-compatible format". Files include an XML data dictionary with complete enumeration values, XML message content and XSLT scripts illustrating how to generate C# header files from the FIX Repository. Also included are XSLT scripts which generate a FIXimate-like (HTML) data browser for the FIX Repository. Please see some of the FIX Repository benefits below.
Vendors can build and maintain subsets of the Repository in order to offer a full FIX product. Engine vendors use the FIX Repository to drive their FIX engines.
By downloading the FIX Repository, customers do not necessarily need to pay for upgrades for engines with each FIX version release.
