Softcoding initial positions


#1

I’d like to modify the example server so that instead of generating the securities and positions from hard coded java that it is possible to load it in through a configuration file.

One way of doing it would be to start with a blank OG installation and then generate the securities via the REST interface. I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions for doing this.


#2

I support this approach.

In fact, I have been creating securities manually via xml by using:
http://localhost:8080/jax/securities/

Also, positions can be loaded via current “portfolio-loader-tool.sh” script which reads from csv file (also see http://docs.opengamma.com/display/DOC200/Loader+tool)
