FpML Tools


The development of tools that support the implementation of a standard such as FpML is of critical importance. In the following sections you will find information on different types of tools, either provided by FpML or by external vendors. Some are open source others are free. They might be FpML specific or more general XML tools.

ISDA is keen to develop and assist with an approach to FpML tools which encourages:

For ease of navigation we divided the tools section in on the one hand tools that are made available by FpML and can be downloaded on this website, and all other tools.

The development and support of tools which support and facilitate the adoption of the FpML standard is strongly supported by ISDA and the FpML standards committee.

Getting Started with Development Tools

FpML tools are developed in a number of areas in which users of the FpML standard have requirements. The tools promote the adoption of the FpML standard in building applications and support efficient business processes.The FpML provides the following tools for development:

Compatibl FpML Cashflows Generator

generates cashflows for interest rate swaps represented in FpML 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, and 5.0 reporting view.

FpML Web Validation Service

This free service checks FpML 4.0, 4.1,4.2, 4.3, 4.4 , 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 5.0, 5.1 and 5.2 documents against the schema, and then against the business validation rules published with the specifications.

FpML to ISIN JSON Generator

We are pleased to launch version 1.0 of the FpML to ISIN JSON Generator. The generator takes FpML trades as input, extracts values from relevant FpML data fields and generates the ANNA DSB-compliant JSON format which can be used to create or inquire about ISIN through the ANNA DSB.

FpML to ISIN JSON Generator Logic

This page contains the logic underlying the conversion from FpML to ISIN JSON format. The information is only available to ISDA members.

FpML to ISIN JSON Generator API

In addition to using the web interface, we have made an API available for firms wanting to interface with the web service directly. Please request access to the API by sending an email to tools@fpml.org In the email, provide your: Name Email Address Company Name Company LEI (optional) << Back to the generator

External Vendor Tools

In addition to the above development tools FpML also provides information on a variety of External Vendor created tools.
