Another purpose of the Alkimia project will be sharing financial data between applications. We will provide a D-Bus server with a well defined interface to the outside world. It should be easy to use for every application (see use cases). This will be done by the [[Projects/KdeFinance/Alkimia/dbus-service|Alkimia D-Bus service]]
