R. Todd Gafford -

This sample demonstrates methods for requesting and processing Daily bars, or other intervals greater than a single day, such as Weekly or Monthly. Please see the Tick History sample for tick or minute bars. There is a link to download the sample at the end of this article.

Before you run the sample, you need to have the following:

  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6 or higher
  • A current ICE Data Services client account. If you do not yet have an account, click here to find out about setting up a trial.

To run the sample from a command line, go to the folder in which you unzipped the sample (see attachment below) and enter the following command:

Windows
> java -jar DWMHistory.jar [-h <host>] -u <username> -p <password> 
[-b <beginDate> -e <endDate> -i <interval> -s <symbols>]
[-o <options>]
Linux
$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./bin
$ java -jar DWMHistory.jar [-h <host>] -u <username> -p <password>
[-b <beginDate> -e <endDate> -i <interval> -s <symbols>
[-o <options>]

where:
