This Java library allows Linux OS users to develop with the Bloomberg API. The Bloomberg API provides free, unrestricted access to raw financial data on current market trades (either real-time or delayed), reference data on historical information, and records of intraday trading. As part of their Open Market Data Initiative the Java library is offered under a "free-use" license, which allows unrestricted access to the interface's header files, documentation, and programming examples. Extensive documentation, including code examples, is available in the Developer Documentation and at the API website. Note that the Linux libraries are only available for the Bloomberg Server API and B-Pipe data feed products and cannot be used with the desktop API.
