I believe, you can do it very easily. I have done these things in past using other cards such as payflex. But i guess it has only basic security. You can refer java card API docs and write an application on PC (using java or VC++). you will need card reader attached to PC. Your PC application can send a command to a card and then card responds.

The quick option is to make use of the test clients offered by your Java Card Authentication provider. If you are not comfortable then try using OpenSC framework which supports PKCS#11 Javacards.

In our book, we illustrated the archiecture, technologies and strategies for how to implement Java Card Authentication and how to combine Java cards with Biometrics.

BTW, who is your Java Card provider.
