javakiteconnect v1.4.3 with Websocket reconnect feature

sujith edited July 2017 in Java client
javakiteconnect is updated with auto reconnection mechanism, check out tickerUsage in examples to know more about usage.
It also includes new POJO for getIndicesQuote.

    is this below code responsible for configuring autoreconnect? does it handle both local(client side) and remote(zerodha) disconnection?

    //minimum value must be 5 for time interval for reconnection
    //set number to times ticker can try reconnection, for infinite retries use -1

  • sujith
    All handling is on client side.
    There is a timer task running every second to check last tick arrived time. If difference between current time and last tick arrived time is more than user specified time interval then it will reconnect.
    You can also specify number of times it can retry.
  • sujith
    Yes, those are the three magical lines ;)
  • pranksterguru
    thanks. i am not sure if you tested this situation.
    does it check ticker arrival of all the stocks? or distinct to each stock

    lets say there is a very less active stock i subscribed along with many other active stocks. the less active stock may not have ticker every second.. and if i had given tickerProvider.setTimeIntervalForReconnection(5);
    and i do not get ticker for 5 seconds for less active stock.. does the api think its disconnected and try to reconnect again?

    Websocket underlying protocol includes a ping pong mechanism and Kite ticker conforms to same protocol and it sends heartbeat ping every second if it is connected.
    Hi sujith,

    I was playing with the Java Streaming Code.
    I found that today on 26-04-2017 (10:44 am), Only the MCX instruments are getting streaming prices.
    I subscribed to NSE and NFO tokens, but not getting any tick price updates.

    Can you please check if any problem.

    Hi Saurabh,
    We use the same streaming websocket on Kite Web also. We haven't received any complaints. We were monitoring some things from the morning and we didn't come across this issue. Can you mention for which scrip you tried?
    I tried for the below
    KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(53394951); //NICKEL APR
    KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(53385735); //CURDE MAY
    KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(5633); //ACC
    KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(738561); //RELIANCE
    KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(12668930); //NIFTY MAY 17 FUT
    //KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(340481); //HDFC
    //KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(2939649); //LT
    //KiteConnectUtility.addTokens(895745); //TATASTEEL

    First 2 worked properly, others didnt

    tickerProvider.setMode(tokens, KiteTicker.modeLTP);

    // Unsubscribe for a token.

    // After using com.rainmatter.ticker, close websocket connection.

    Its (Streaming) not working even today. Can you confirm it is working in your machine by using the same instrument tokens.

    Hi Saurabh,
    Above code looks fine and I just tested websockets with above mentioned tokens and i am getting data. Maybe some other part of code is affecting.
    Ok. Thanks. I will investigate at my end.
    Found the probelm in my code. Thanks sujith. Amazing API.

    I am using the service of Kite connect. I need all the instrument list of nifty which contain the information of all the nifty stocks with open high low in just one request to server. Now I just get the only one quotas using below example,, kindly suggest
  • sachet_singh
    I ran this utility, and subscribed for 408065 (infy), full quote mode. I get only HeartBeat messages, and no quote messages. Any idea what could be wrong. thanks

    the websocket call goes fine
