Presentation Information

When I tried to find a library that would allow me talk to a credit card reader via serial/usb under Windows, I didn’t find much that sounded like it would work. Rxtx works pretty well. It has one .jar and two .dll’s (one for serial and one for parallel)” I’ll talk about
  • the Rxtx api
  • finding serial ports
  • my credit card reader applet (aka hexadecimal hell)
  • some multi threading I’m doing in my applet
  • some event listening code to use instead of multi threading
