Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-191) Use of SWIFT document in Commons Validator
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2014 18:38:08 GMT
Sebb created LEGAL-191:

             Summary: Use of SWIFT document in Commons Validator
                 Key: LEGAL-191
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-191
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Sebb

Commons Validator provides basic IBAN validation.

It would be useful to include sample valid IBANs from the SWIFT registry as part of the test

The SWIFT website includes a document with samples.
The document also contains additional information on formats etc that would be useful in creating
stricter validation checks.

The website terms of use [1] include the following:


This site contains proprietary Materials of S.W.I.F.T. SCRL and/or of its suppliers. All rights

You are, however, authorised to view, download and make available the Materials published
on this site within your own organisation as may be reasonably necessary for the purpose for
which it is supplied, unmodified or unaltered in any way."

Is it likely to be a problem if we include the IBAN Registy document [2] in the source code
for Commons Validator? Initially it would only be needed as test data, but potentially it
would later be useful to extract the validation information to enable stricter checks of IBANs.

An alternative approach might be to download the document only when creating/updating the
validation rules and test data. (There is a lot of information that is not relevant). The
project would then only contain the relevant extracts from the document.
