    Local USB card reader + remote flex app?



      I have a situation where I need to collect data from a USB magnetic card reader (on the local machine) and send it to the client's browser (to a flex application in the server).

      I researched and found that flex can't do it alone, so I wonder: how can I make java read the card (on the clients), then send it to the correct flex instance to show it's code in the screen?

      I thought about using AIR, but that would complicate the communications and messaging between the clients


      A made a diagram:
      Card reader sends to client, wich should tell the server to display it's code on the webpage.

      This is all within a local area network.


      Any ideas how to solve this?
      Thanks for your attention.
