How to configure Bloomberg Terminal


#1

I have installed a BloomBerg Terminal on a Windows system and the OpenGamma platform on a mac.What are the settings I must enter so that the open gamma platform (examples-bloomberg) can see the bloomberg terminal?
Thank you.

For example, although I have a bloomberg terminal running in a web browser on my macbook pro when I am trying to run the init-examples-bloomberg-db.sh script I get the error :

com.opengamma.livedata.ConnectionUnavailableException: No Bloomberg connection is available

The config for Bloomberg is set in /examples-bloomberg/config/fullstack/fullstack-examplesbloomberg.properties

By defaut, this is:
bloomberg.host=localhost
bloomberg.port=8194
However, the Bloomberg terminal only accepts connections from localhost, so the config cannot be changed. This is to ensure compliance with the Bloomberg license conditions (data cannot leave the machine running the terminal). You will need to run OpenGamma on the Windows box to connect to a local Bloomberg.
