The Technical Details
ORE is written in C++ and it is based on QuantLib, the “free/open-source library for quantitative finance”, which in turn depends on the Boost C++ libraries (http://boost.org). ORE provides a hierarchy of libraries for QuantLib extensions, data management and risk analytics which allow full extensibility. ORE’s SWIG language bindings facilitate integration of ORE with applications written in Python or Java.
