    Default JavaPOS Applet

    I have a RoR web app that I would like to add some functionality to. I want this app to be able to communicate with POS devices (cash drawer, printer). I believe the best way to accomplish this would be to embed a signed Java Applet. My plan is to add a bit of javascript that will send signals to the applet telling it when to print, open the cash drawer, etc. The Java Applet will use the JavaPOS standards.


    1) Does this sound like a reasonable way to handle my situation?

    2) Are there any applets like this available (whether opensource or commercially) that I could plug in? Or am I better off just writing the applet myself?

    With all the different equipment involved I don't think you will be able to do it all from the web side but it sure would be fantastic if you can! I want to do the same thing if possible. I am struggling to get my simple command line app to talk to the printer/cashdrawer at the moment. Examples and documentation are seriously lacking!
