Hi every one,

I have developed a Point of Sale system in java using Eclipse RCP, then i connected the software with printer to print invoices and it worked fine.

Now, i wants my software to be connected with a billing machine , so invoices should be generated from that billing machine, I have noclue how i to do it.

Any help will be largely appreciated.

Regards,

What is a "billing machine", and what software does it run?

Like Ulf said: You need to explain what a "billing machine" is.

Is it simply a glorified printer or something more?

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
