Description

Java for Retai
l POS (JavaPOS) is an architecture for Java
-
based POS (Point
-
Of
-
Service or Point
-
Of
-
Sale)
device access, that provides a set of POS device interfaces (APIs).


It is an implementation of the
UnifiedPOS architecture.

The benefits of JavaPOS include:



The opp
ortunity for reduced POS terminal costs, through the use of thinner clients.




Platform
-
independent applications, where the application is separated from both hardware and
operating system specifics.




Reduced administration costs, because an application and

supporting software may be maintained
on a server and loaded on demand by Java.


The JavaPOS architecture was derived from the OLE for Retail POS (OPOS) standard: most of the OPOS
APIs were mapped into the Java language.

The JavaPOS standard was developed

by a joint effort of leading retailers, hardware companies and
software companies. It includes hardware vendors: Sun Microsystems, IBM, NCR, Epson, Fujitsu,
Ultimate Technology, Star and Wincor Nixdorf; retailers: Home Depot, JC Penney, Kmart and Sears; a
nd
software companies: PCMS Datafit, RCS, Triversity, BearingPoint and 360Commerce.
