Hi Erlangers

 I have to implement a foreign exchange trader software for a financial
firm.
They need fast response and high availability. They also need parallel real
time feed from multiple brokers.
As I did my preliminary investigations,It seems most of the tools on the
field are implemented in Microsoft technologies like .net or com/OLE.
I believe (although I might be wrong) the broker servers are DDE servers.
I decided to use Erlang/otp. Does anyone know if something like this has
done before in Erlang.
Also I appreciate any guidance on how to get feed from trader servers.

Thanks a lot
Best regards
Shahrdad
