I need API access to get ForEx tickers and order books for currency pairs. From what I can tell there is a .Net API called ForexConnect which I can use to get this data. Now where can I get this data from? What services support this interface?

The example code that comes with the .Net ForexConnect API seems to show a connection to fxcorporate.com/Hosts.jsp - what is this? Is this a real service endpoint? – Paul Fryer Sep 28 '13 at 15:41
Why do you need that particular interface? Lots of market data comes through in a binary protocol, so you could just write your own feed handler. – chrisaycock Sep 28 '13 at 16:01

ForexConnect is an API for FXCM.
