Refinitiv provides several methods for users to consume real-time streaming financial data from Refinitiv Real-time servers. Users can choose from low-level and high-performance APIs to high-level and easy-to-use WebSocket APIs. 

The Refinitiv Real-Time SDKs are suites of modern and open source APIs that are designed to simplify development through a strong focus on ease of use and standardized access to a broad set of Refinitiv and proprietary content and services. They currently support C, C++, and Java programming languages and can be run on several operating systems including Windows, Oracle Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and CentOS.

Besides Refinitiv Real-Time SDKs, Refinitiv also provides a WebSocket solution for other developers who are not familiar with C, C++, and Java programming languages. The WebSocket API consists of a protocol specification and a set of sample programs used to illustrate the usage of the protocol to establish WebSocket connections to Refinitiv Real-Time Distribution Systems, or Refinitiv Real-Time - Optimized (cloud solution) available via Refinitiv Data Platform (RDP).

This video demonstrates how to use the Refinitiv WebSocket API on the Docker platform.
