    When SI is calling SPE Envelope Service the log shows ERROR 000510050004.

    Unable to locate these files:

    translator_swift_2018.properties
    translator_swift_mp_2018.properties
    translator_swift_mp_customer_2018.properties

    DynamicClassPath.cfg.in contains VENDOR_JAR=C:\IBM\SPE_10.0.1\jars\spe-10.0-swift.jar yet the effort fails with files missing.


    Support for the current SWIFT standards is needed, ie. 2021.properties and soon 2022.properties

    Support for past versions is needed when financial institutions exchange messages via peer-to-peer.

    Support for the TPUI Envelope field - STANDARD VERSION to indicate the version of the data to build and validate against. Today, this drop-down field offers back to 2005.
