1) Big Smokes has an existing relationship with Merchant Bank to handle their credit card
transactions. They use a point of sale (POS) system to manually enter a customer's credit card
numbers and expiration date. Merchant Bank can handle Internet transactions.

how it works, how is it programmed? how credit card is used (i dont have mine)

2) Each manufacturers has an inventory system that
uses an industry standard interface based on the JavaTM Message Service (JMS).

Does it mean i have to query about availability, and make orders through jms? How do i get a response to the availability query, also through jms, should I hive return jms address?, and confirmation/failure of order similar?

3) Freight Movers has a proprietary Java API for sending
shipping requests.
does it means rmi?
or should i use Java Connector Architecture?

Hi Kazimierz,

For Point 3, I must assume that Freight Movers provides a kind of "client" library you can include in your application.
So, nothing more to do than an assumption ;)
