Subject Re: [Validator] Unable to validate an IBAN with IbanCheckDigit.isValid(ibanNbr)
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 11:53:49 GMT
Hi Sebb,

I totally agree with you.
Now the bank account number was made up because didn't want my number 
in a publc list.
However here is a real one: DE46310601810088194012

Which I checked on the site : http://www.ibancalculator.com/
The number is validated as valid. On all specifications.

However when i validate using the commons isvalid it returns false.
IBANCheckDigit  IbanCheckDigit = new  IBANCheckDigit();
boolean isIbanCheckOK = 
IbanCheckDigit.isValid("DE46310601810088194012");
Any ideas why the commons validation return false?

Pim
