A JCL architectural whitepaper

The entire set of "pure Java" source code modules for a simple implementation of the JCL

The associated JavaDOC generated documentation.
JCL 1.2.0 EA3 can either be used directly, or as a starting point for 3rd party enhancements. Like the JavaPOS Device Controls, the JCL 1.2 code is downloadable, subject only to the conditions described in the disclaimer at the front of each module.

Coupled with the updated set of Device Controls(v1.4A), this release provides all the source code needed to connect a JavaPOS application to a JavaPOS Device Service.

Since 100% pure Java Device Services may be constructured by using the JavaComm API implimentation available at:
