    Default Java Coin Acceptor?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to get a USB coin acceptor which can increment a field in a Java application to the amount inserted?

    If possible where could I get this fromand how would I get the coin acceptor to interact with the applet ?

    You need a device driver for the coin acceptor, and a Java wrapper around the native code.

    It's unlikely that applet security will allow this set-up, but it might.

    Please could you explain what this means?

    "a Java wrapper around the native code"

    also are there any products on the market built for java?

    Thanks for your help so far.

    I'm sure yours is a lovely coin recognition system. But, please, don't revive threads from their long slumber to post advertising. And if you are answering an actual, living, thread, address the question by saying how your hardware really does provide a Java interface.
