Just to add to Gary’s reply. The Bloomberg API will support multiple connections on the same source. The number of different symbols you can subscribe to is limited only by what you are entitled to and by any subscription limits that Bloomberg may apply to your account.
Currently, the Tick42 blp bridge does not generate mamda book messages. This is planned for a future version, but not yet scheduled
I hope this answers you questions, but please feel free to contact us if you need any further information.

Thanks for your email.
Could I ask you to clarify your scenario a bit more please? For example when you say you have multiple subscribing applications, would these be separate instances of the application, or perhaps with the same process? From an OpenMAMA perspective there shouldn’t be any problem with making multiple subscriptions to the same source via the same bridge.
For your second query, yes OpenMAMDA is capable handling orderbooks.

I have some doubts about OpenMAMA and Bloomberg. In first place, I'm wondering if it is possible to conect multiple subscriber applications to bloomberg (using the tick42blp middleware bridge), each one subscribed to the same source (the
name space for the data, e.g. "BlpMktData"), but subscribed to a different symbols, something like this:
| subscriber-1 | | subscriber-2 | | subscriber-n |
| openMAMA |
| bloomberg bridge |
*subscriber-1, 2 and n are subscribed to diferent individual symbols.
In second place, is it possible to use openMAMDA to get the order books for each one of those subscribed symbols with the current available bridge from Tick42?
And that's all. Thank you for your help, I will really appreciate it, and other additional information or advices you want to give me.
