The ICE 4.8 custom message extension enables SOAtest and Virtualize to support the ICE 4.8 message format. ICE 4.8 is one of the formats used in the FIX (Financial Information eXchange) protocol. Installing the extension adds the ICE 4.8 Client for SOAtest and the ICE 4.8 Message Responder for Virtualize, as well as enables other messaging tools to leverage the ICE 4.8 format.  



The tool can be installed from the UI or command line.

UI Installation

  1. Choose Parasoft > Preferences and click System Properties
  2. Click Add JARs and choose the<VERSION>-<DATE>-ice48.jar file. 
  3. Repeat this process to install any FIX formats you are using.
  4. Restart SOAtest/Virtualize.

Command Line Installation

Add the<VERSION>-<DATE>-ice48.jar file to the property in your localsettings properties file. For example:<path to jar>/<VERSION>-<DATE>-ice48.jar 

Once the classpath is modified, all of the required dependencies will be loaded.
