Properties of Bloomberg B-PIPE connection V3

Description

example

v = get(c) returns a structure where each field name is the name of a property of the bloombergBPIPE object c, which uses the Bloomberg® B-PIPE® C++ interface, and each field contains the value of that property.

example

v = get(c,properties) returns the value of the specified properties properties for the Bloomberg V3 connection object.

Create a Bloomberg B-PIPE connection using the IP address of the machine running the Bloomberg B-PIPE process. This example uses the Bloomberg B-PIPE C++ interface and assumes the following:

  • The authentication is Windows® authentication when you set authtype to 'OS_LOGON'.

  • The application name is blank because you are not connecting to Bloomberg B-PIPE using an application.

  • The IP address for the machine running the Bloomberg B-PIPE process is '111.11.11.112'.

  • The port number of the machine running the Bloomberg B-PIPE process is 8194.

c is a bloombergBPIPE object.

authtype = 'OS_LOGON';
appname = '';
ipaddress = {'111.11.11.112'};
port = 8194;

c = bloombergBPIPE(authtype,appname,ipaddress,port);

Retrieve the Bloomberg connection properties.

v = get(c)
ans = 

  struct with fields:

      session: [1×1 datafeed.internal.BLPSession]
    ipaddress: "localhost"
        port: 8194.00

v is a structure containing the Bloomberg session object, IP address, port number, and timeout value.

Close the Bloomberg connection.

close(c)

Create a Bloomberg B-PIPE connection using the IP address of the machine running the Bloomberg B-PIPE process. This example uses the Bloomberg B-PIPE C++ interface and assumes the following:

  • The authentication is Windows authentication when you set authtype to 'OS_LOGON'.

  • The application name is blank because you are not connecting to Bloomberg B-PIPE using an application.

  • The IP address for the machine running the Bloomberg B-PIPE process is '111.11.11.112'.

  • The port number of the machine running the Bloomberg B-PIPE process is 8194.

c is a bloombergBPIPE object.

authtype = 'OS_LOGON';
appname = '';
ipaddress = {'111.11.11.112'};
port = 8194;

c = bloombergBPIPE(authtype,appname,ipaddress,port);

Retrieve the port number from the Bloomberg connection object by specifying 'port' as a character vector.

property = "port";
v = get(c,property)
v =

        8194

v is a double that contains the port number of the Bloomberg connection object.

Close the Bloomberg connection.

close(c)

Create a cell array properties with character vectors 'session' and 'port'. Retrieve the Bloomberg session object and port number from the Bloomberg connection object.

properties = ["session" "port"];
v = get(c,properties)
v = 

  struct with fields:

    session: [1x1 com.bloomberglp.blpapi.Session]
       port: 8194

v is a structure containing the Bloomberg session object and port number.

Close the Bloomberg connection.

close(c)
