Server connection down and delay on order (about 5 sec from clic to have the highligh ok on the book). Sometimes.

This is probably a mis-configuration in your setup or the broker did not upgrade to the latest Eurex Gateway 7.14.6.5p30.

I'm also a J2EE programmer, JAVA or J2EE code is not slow, badly written JAVA or J2EE code is slow. Just keep that in mind. I would just program certain parts in Assembler if I would program a charting program.

Just my 2cents

Thanks for your message. I would say that something is changed about IT. Multi OS software should be the goal. I can do all my things on linux pc totally windows free. A part of trading ... I think -it's my personal idea- we are in 2011 and in this age software trading industry is pretty obsolete. Many sw don't run on 64bit, use api 10 years old, sometimes not yet compatible with win7. TT recomanded before X_Trader 7.8.2 to run their sw on winXP ... this until two months ago. TT is a giant.
I USE X_Trader and I am not a linux fundamentalist :-)
... but I don't understand why the dev of trading software is so slow ...

If your paying that much, then just get cqg..
They're data quality surpasses DTN imo.... But its not cheap either.

I wish it were only an extra $100 a month for esignal or someone else. I play a bunch of futures (CME, CBOT, EUREX, Euronext, LIFFE) and then i have to pay extra fees to trade oil, gold, silver etc on most charting, even though they are on CME, go figure... I am looking closer to 400-500 a month .

I called up my broker, MAN, to find out about using Ninja and TT, and they quoted me a similar price (5K) for a stand alone server to to hook up the two. I didnt really understand all of what they said. But I'm not really interested in paying that much, and then having to use ninja. And i would need to keep TT running all the time, to record data

PS - Gboos' I just realized the TT data is broker filtered. Mann upgraded their Eurex servers, and presto, Eurostoxx looked like S&P... I actually liked the old "chunky" way before, though I am assuming the new servers are faster, so I'll take it

But keep me posted on the MC - TT thing ... it sounds interesting

Please be aware that any data you see in the X-Trader is "FILTERED" by the broker! The EBS EUREX feed is not !

How much the data is filtered?
By the way, do you know if in CQG the data also is filtered? (For comparing the two applications)?

Thanks!

As Dale Box from Velocity already said, TT Datafeed is unfiltered!
