    Default Guidance for Stock trading software

    I have created software to store Stock data (open, low, high and close) and apply some statistics to predict the trend. The software is developed with Visual basic 6. Now I need to feed live data in the system and I am having trouble with it as VB 6 as it is not platform independent.

    I want to recode the software in JAVA. What should I use the code same software in JAVA? CORE JAVA , Servlet , Beans or strut etc.

    The main aim is to get feed the software with live stock data. Please provide some guidance along with that idea. Overall the software should capable to store daily data of stock as well as apply some formulas on live stock data. .

    It really depends on your needs if you want a servlet or a desktop application. If your software is web based you could use a servlet but you could also use a java applet so it's really up to your needs. Since you mentioned Struts you probably are looking at a web-based service? However struts requires you to have a good understanding of the java language, so it might be better for you to start off with Java.

    Thank you for the response. when you say JAVA means CORE JAVA ??? The database will store daily data (stock, open, low, high and close etc data) NYSE Stock data. Are you suggesting to use core java ???

    Down the line, my aim is get the live data from e-signal and feed in the software. what technology of JAVA will help me out to achieve it?

    Yes, but don't worry so much about the different words they use. Java, Core Java, Servlet, and Beans are all written in the same language.

    "Core Java" just means the Java Standard Edition (talking about the libraries). Java SE is different to Java ME and Java EE because there are different libraries for different devices (e.g. old cell phones had Java ME installed - it had extra packages for phone stuff like SMS - it also didn't need certain packages like Swing used in desktop applications).

    You will need to look at the Java Tutorials first. Once you have an understanding of the concepts of Java programming, and the syntax, then you can use that knowledge in any of those Java libraries or packages.

    So you should probably start here:
    The Java Tutorials
