  = OFX4J, an implementation of OFX in Java =
  
  == Abstract ==
- 
  OFX4J is an implementation of the OFX specification in Java.
  
  == Proposal ==
@@ -18, +17 @@

   
  OFX4J was developed by Ryan Heaton and made publicly available http://ofx4j.sourceforge.net/
in July 2008. The initial release supported Version 1 and Version 2 of the OFX specification.
Since then the OFX specification has been updated to version 2.1.1.
  
- == Rationale == 
+ == Rationale ==
- 
  There are very few open source implementations of the OFX specification. Because the specification
defines messages and resposnes applications must either implement their own Java API around
the message set or use a proprietary product. OFX4J aims to solve this by allowing applications
to use its API to access any OFX server.
  
  Financial providers that desire to provide an OFX server must currently either implement
the specification on their own or purchase a proprietary product. OFX4J solves this by providing
a server component that can interact with the financial provider's system. 
  
  == Initial Goals ==
- 
  The initial goals of the proposed project are:
   * Create a viable community around the OFX4J codebase.
   * Improve the codebase to support the latest OFX specification.
  
- == Current Status == 
+ == Current Status ==
- 
  The current code base was created by Ryan Heaton and provides a solid foundation. The code
base is already licensed under the Apache 2.0 license. Further development will occur in line
with the project's stated goals and wherever the project community determines it should go.

  
  === Meritocracy ===
- 
  Apache was chosen for an incubator for the guidance the community can provide in helping
the project grow.
  
  === Community ===
- 
  There is not yet a strong OFX4J community. The current code base has a number of interested
users. The primary goal of the incubating project is to build a self-sustaining community
around this code base. All the involved parties have a very strong desire to see OF4JX become
the leading OFX platform.

  The initial source for the project will come from the existing code base at Sourceforge.
The code will be committed by Ryan Heaton under his ICLA.
