In addition to our current C# libraries for the ZXP Card printer series, we are pleased to announce the release of the new Java Card SDK. The purpose of the Java Card SDK is to provide total support for all current ZXP Card printers as to easily integrate card printing into multiple application and customer use cases. Given that the new SDK is Java-based, the SDK will allow developers to integrate card printing into their applications from Windows, Linux, and Mac OS environments, with separate installers for each. The SDK is supported across these operating systems using Java Runtime Environment (JRE) v1.6, v1.7, or v1.8. Complete documentation using JAVA Docs are also included as shown below:
Not only does the SDK encompass enhanced drawing and graphic capabilities, but all card formatting capabilities may be described in an easy-to-use XML template that can be sent to the printer. A template document may describe a card layout by defining fonts, sides, graphics, text, barcodes, shapes, and magnetic encoding.
You will find that the Java Card SDK developer demos differ considerably from that of our current C# SDKs. The Java Card SDK includes various demos demonstrating functionality such as:
