how to read information from RFID reader into our java program

Posted 12 January 2013 - 11:02 AM

I just wanted to know the ways of accessing the data from rfid reader to the system(java program). Upto my knowledge i came to know the two ways in reading the data from reader (connected using the usb cable) i.e, one by using the jusb program and other by using the vendor given software.


I have bought an rfid reader from
(http://extremeelectronics.co.in/electronics/getting-started-with-serial-rfid-reader/)

The main issue is how to access the data from the reader to my java program and to use it for further functioning. In the vendor site it is clear of accessing data using some software (real terminal) but how to access it into our java program. Is there any other way of accessing the data from the reader. if so please reply me.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

The Java Communications API is probably your best starting point, unless a 3rd Party API already exists for this technology.

You bought some hardware. Why are you not getting the people you paid to support it?

I don't think you're going to have too much luck with this in Java. You're probably going to have to use JNI too hook into the OS usb support.

Actually, that question is interesting but it looks like, from the docs, that one is forced to use serial comms
