smart card integration on jsp page

Hi
I want to integrate smart card to an existing intranet web application.

Let me explain the design we are planning to implement.
The smart card is not for authentication. This module will be at the sales point. The customers have a smart card with required information. When inserted the required info in the card is read and should be populated in the field on jsp page.
What I want to know is how to get the smart card info onto the jsp page.

How do I go about developing this?

From my knowledge, I think this might be possible using an activex control or applet provided required security settings are configured to access the smart card reader(this is not a problem because the system is trusted and within the company facility). Please tell me if this is possible.

If the above given solution is possible please help me with some links where I can find more info on this.

Also like to know if there are other methods to do it.

As you already know that you will need to emply an applet or ActiveX control on the client, this isn't a JSP issue at all.

I've moved this to the Applets forum.

You're right that either an applet or an ActiveX control (if you're using IE) should be able to do this. The vendor of your smartcard reader should provide you with information and/or software that helps with this.

It's like I said, ActiveX controls work in IE only.
