SBE (Simple Binary Encoding) is a protocol for decoding and encoding messages in binary format. It is optimized for low latency and deterministic performance.
The message format is defined using native primitive data types (integers, chars), so no translation is needed to put data into a wire format. SBE addresses data representation only; there are no business-level requirements on the message structure. Both fixed-length and variable-length fields are supported.
The message layout is defined in the XML-based SBE template (schema). The template defines which fields belong to a message and their location within a message. It also describes valid value ranges and information that need not be sent on the wire, such as constant values.
The OnixS SBE Decoders and Encoders are ultra-low latency implementations of the SBE Protocol supported in C++, Java, .NET. It is widely used in mission-critical production systems as a building block of the following products:
