UNX LLC (UNX), which provides trading tools and other services for institutional investors and brokers, wanted to develop a next-generation Execution Management System (EMS). The company used the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 development system and the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 to build Catalyst, a desktop application for the Windows operating system that UNX's customers can easily adapt to meet their needs. Based on the Windows Presentation Foundation, Catalyst uses the Managed AddIn Framework to run all functionality as loadable add-ins, and it supports scripts in languages such as Ruby and Python through the use of the Dynamic Language Runtime.
