Practice Report GEFEG.Validation.Portal

GEFEG.Validation.Portal supports the rollout of bank messages at Austrian credit institutions. Together with the Studiengesellschaft für Zusammenarbeit im Zahlungsverkehr Ges.m.b.H., STUZZA for short, a GEFEG.Validation.Portal was installed in the banking sector.

The STUZZA checker has been available to users since July 2001. The great response and the success of the project are evidenced by the user figures in the core period of the introduction (July 2001 to March 2004):

About 2,000 users tested about 25,000 transmission files!

As of January 1, 2002, Austrian credit institutions abandoned the national format for electronic data exchange previously used in payment transactions in favor of UN/EDIFACT. The aim of the project was to provide the credit institutions in Austria, their customers and the software houses involved in the project with an easily accessible, easy-to-use software solution for testing bank messages as a service in good time before the changeover. The credit institutions were thus almost completely relieved of time-consuming checks of incoming messages during the test phase when converting the traditional data format in payment transactions to the EDIFACT format.

With the GEFEG.Validation.Portal, STUZZA offers software support for the introduction of electronic messages

In close cooperation with STUZZA, the syntactic checks, which are standard during testing, were individually extended and adapted by plausibility checks including meaningful error messages. After determining which contents should be checked for plausibility, these checks were implemented in the application description of the bank message. The test routine was thus optimally adjusted to the specific conditions of Austrian payment transactions. At the same time, the reference standard was incorporated into the GEFEG.Validation.Portal as an HTML project. The errors displayed in the error log can thus be easily traced and subsequently corrected with the help of the documentation.

Credit institutions and their customers benefit from the GEFEG.Validation.Portal
in several ways


The GEFEG.Validation.Portal makes an immense contribution to saving time and resources when introducing electronic messages to a larger circle of users!

STUZZA kindly allows us to link and present their XML checker on the GEFEG web pages.
