I once tried to create a client for the fonds bank of Frankfurt. But I didn't expect their JSON API to be designed by a trainee.

Look at the API.
Stringified numbers, decimal commas (Germany), separator dots for thousands, and even one breaks as if it came from a pjp script where they just put an if condition in each line.

I documented the API and tried to create a Jax rs client, but stopped completing it. Not useable atm. Just look at what I spoofed.

    Dates are not UTC and don't have any timezone information.

    That's horrifying. Whoever approved that obviously gets paid too much.

    Or underpaid. I'd do that if i only got half of my money to make it hard to maintain to whomever comes after me

    Stringified numbers make sense for banking. But the separators xD why would one do that?

    Wtf non UTC dates without tz field? The guy that made this was drunk

    @QCat it's not really banking. It's just displaying values. So you lose the possibility to format to another locale.
