I got digital signature certificate stored in a smart card.I places smart card into card reader and plugged usb port of server.
I can see card reader in windows environment.My problem is to connect card reader and access digital signature certificate using java code.
I thinh it needs javax.smartcardio but i did not find necessary jar file for jdk 1.5.xx.
1- Where can i download jar fiel for javax.smartcardio for jdk 1.5.xx
2- Is there a blog or forum thread to help me to use smart card over usb?
One of the beauty of Java is that when the Java VM does not let you do something (here: accessing a Smart Card), there is no way that a purely Java solution will add this functionality.
Hence, what you ask simply can not be done in pure Java (1.)5. Some machine-specific non-java code is required. And you did not specify your target.
Unless a jar file could contain machine-specific code (I don't know if this is the case, and I never made one such jar file), there seems to be no way a jar file could help.
The JPCSC project (a part of Muscle Card) and Open Card Framework will allow you to communicate with a smartcard in Java 5. You will need to search the internet (or old posts on this forum) to find the files and examples as I do not have either right now. I know there have been posts about OCF on the forum.
