[R-SIG-Finance] Rbloomberg JavaAPI

Yes, when I downloaded the API from the Bloomberg website (not in the
terminal, but at:  http://about.bloomberg.com/software/index.html) it
put the jar file at "C:\blp\API\blpapi3.jar".  Now when I download it
from the terminal (WAPI <GO>), I downloaded the SDK (as opposed to the
BBComm and API Tools download from the website),  it has now put it in
the path "C:\blp\API\APIv3\JavaAPI\v3.3.1.1\lib\blpapi3.jar".  Either
way, I realized through your documentation that I could direct the
blpConnect() function to where the .jar file was, and that got it

Thanks for your effort in converting the interface out of the
RDCOMClient interface, it is much cleaner and so far more reliable.

Hi, Kent,

Sorry for the delay in replying to you!

Is the file at C:\blp\API\blpapi3.jar?

If not can you take a look and let me know the full path to the file?

Also, you might try updating your Bloomberg version 3 API if that's
possible, it might then place it in the standard install location. You
can do this from within Bloomberg. I think the earliest versions
installed the file in non-standard places, so upgrading might fix this.

RBloomberg kindly asked me to inform you that my "blpapi3.jar" file is
in "c:\blp\API" root directory, and not in the "\SPIv3\JavaAPI" sub
directory.  I'm not sure if this is the standard install, but if not,
please let me know what I need to move in order to get it working (I'm
not a Java programmer, so please excuse my ignorance on the matter).
