OpenHBCI is the world's first free Open Source implementation of the
German home banking standard HBCI.
This version 0.9.2 fixes bugs in the communication with Deutsche Bank
servers, which now works fine. Note that all releases in the 0.9.x
series are still beta and not recommended for usage in a production
environment. Nevertheless the development team encourages testers from
all over Germany to try the HBCI functionality and provide feedback from
as many banks as possible.
HBCI is a bank-independent standard that defines the communication
between an arbitrary finance application and any arbitrary
HBCI-capable bank server. Roughly half of the banks in Germany offer
home banking access through HBCI. The OpenHBCI library enables
programmers of finance applications to seamlessly integrate HBCI
functionality into their programs, without having to know anything
about HBCI details. HBCI business actions, like for example statement
retrieval, bank transfer initiation or issuing of debit notes, can
easily be invoked through very few lines of application program code.
OpenHBCI is written in C++ and can be used from both C++ and C. The
library runs stable under Linux/Unix and has successfully been used on
real bank accounts for months now. OpenHBCI is available under the Free
Software Licence GNU Lesser General Public Licence (LGPL). [written by cstim]
