Recebi uma dica do meu amigo Carlos Fernando Gonçalves, do JavaNoroeste.
A dica é o texto “Check out Java Card 3.0 Connected Edition: Real Java, just really flat “, do Terrence Barr.
Bem, o JavaCard, segundo a própria Sun (Oracle agora?), Java Card technology provides a secure environment for applications that run on smart cards and other devices with very limited memory and processing capabilities. Multiple applications can be deployed on a single card, and new ones can be added to it even after it has been issued to the end user. Applications written in the Java programming language can be executed securely on cards from different vendors.
Sobre o artigo do Terrence, Java Card 3.0 was released a couple of months ago – and the second update (version 3.0.2) is scheduled for December. Ou seja, o JavaCard ganhou um upgrade.. Bem, pessoalmente, fiquei impressionado com esses três itens:
* GCF, servlet, Java Card 2 API, sockets, threads, transactions …
Servlet Container with Servlet 2.5 support
* HTTP and HTTPS interface
* No need of special client programming – use any web client to reach Java Card 3
Netbeans plug-in for easy development
* See the sneak preview
* New version of plug-in will be available in December with the 3.0.2 release
Sobre o último item, vejam este link.
Uma pena que to bem sem tempo, com 1001 coisas na fila pra estudar… mas o JavaCard deve ser bem legal..
