    cash drawer

      Where should I start looking at Flex working with a cash drawer? Scan Gun? Credit Cards?

       

      Thanks

          hi,

           

          because the things you describe usually have OS dependant drivers you would need to look not just at Air but possible the new Air 2.0 features which allows you to run flex as a native OS application.

            You can also check Merapi, this is if you don't want to wait for Air 2.0. On the Java side you could check UnifiedPOS/JPOS

            . But before implementing anything be sure to check the devices you intent to support drivers!! We've successfully connect Ingenico and Verifone Credit card/signature captures and I'm sure the API support drawers.

             

            The Scan Guns we've used are mostly KeyboardWedge so there is no need for hardware communication, just a good handling of the focus in the app.
