I presume from ColdFusion's|the web's point of view the signature is an
image, and will be treated like any other image.
The tool that captures that signature and creates an image is entirely
Yes, as far as I understand it, it would be an image and would be fine as an image. I think anywhow. If I can get the image, I can upload it via ColdFusion to a directory on the server.
The tool is one issue, not sure if the siglite will work. Getting ideas for the tool
The software is another issue. Do I need any other software? Can I do it with a tool and ColdFusion. Do I need a tool, some sort of software and ColdFusion? This is the part I have no idea on.

I would be surprised if you need any other software than whatever comes
to drive the tool, but you may need something to marry that together
with the browser.
The difficulty I see is that browsers are not configured to take an
image as a direct input. In a browser, images are handled with the
'file' input control and it could be difficult getting something to
automatically accept the image generated by the tool. Without a user
browsing to the generated image file anyways.
I've only seen this kind of technology used with desktop software that
has more access to the OS and file system then browsers do for security
You may want to look at the adobe Flex AIR project. As I understand the
project AIR is for creating desktop applications that work well with
internet server tools such as ColdFusion.
Thanks, I will check out Flex AIR.
Any other ideas, please let me know.
