Small Products

With "small products" I mean complementary tools that solves some specific functional area but with restricted functionality i.e. they are not a web server, trading system e.t.c.

The described "small products" below are generic however adopted to be used with SunGard FRONT ARENA.

Python BatchGrid
The BatchGrid is basicly a simple mechanism for distributing calculation in parallell.

Background
A batch script typically follow this pattern:
a) Collect data.
b) Perform calculations.
c) Generate a report.

The BatchGrid builds a mechnism that let you distribute the calcualtions in step b) so that they can be performed in parallell and then collected before the c) step is performed.
Normally only a minor changes into an existing script (written in python of course) are needed.

Historical Price viewer

Is a simple web application together with an index builder that displays exported historical price data from a source of prices.

Transaction Viewer

Is a package of a:
Index mechanism for indexing audit files.
A web server part using the index for accessing matched transactions.
A web client part displaying the result.
In summary: gives you a web application for displaying the audit log.
Building other kinds of auditing reports etc. is very easy because the index itself is built using the Lucene technology which is plattform independent and wrapped to many different program languages such as Java,C# and Python.

Database cleanup

It seems as many people are writing script for cleaning up the ADS database.
I will package my written tools for anyone to use.
