Sun?s Javasoft business unit will be jumping on the e-commerce bandwagon on Tuesday when it announces the Java Electronic Commerce Framework and a number of Java commerce APIs aimed at companies who want to perform on-line transactions over the net.
The company is expected to introduce a client side Java wallet, which will act as a basic infrastructure in to which users will be able to insert different payment cassettes from people like Mondex or Cybercash.
According to Amy Porter, European marketing manager for Javasoft, the company will be announcing a series of partners that have manufactured cassettes for slotting into the wallet. ?We are providing a very general horizantal framework particularly focused on the transaction side of things. People will be able to choose which credit card they use and which verification method.?
JECF consists of the Java Wallet, a database, payment and service components and administrative interfaces that provide information about the user and payment methods. It will support the Secure Electronic Transactions (SET) protocol for credit-card transactions, as well as other means of on-line transactions such as smart cards, electronic checks and tokens. According to Porter the framework will initially be aimed at business-to-business and business-to-customer transactions. ?The java wallet is a client piece but we will be providing server side interfaces as well,? she said.
