The LUTZWOLF©DeviceController (referred to below as the LDC for short) is a device-management platform which provides application programs in the banking sector with a standardized method for accessing and managing bank terminals of all types and brands.
The LDC can:
- make peripheral devices available in a network regardless of how they are physically accessed
- make a single standardized access point available to application programs for all peripheral devices in the LDC system.
- make a central point available for configuration and administration of all peripheral devices contained in the LDC system
- make available a simple API (Application Programming Interface), which facilitates fast integration of access functions for peripheral devices into application programs.
The LDC provides an integration platform for devices, which enables access to all peripheral devices for application programs via a single, standardized access point. These devices can either be connected to the workstation on which the relevant application is running or to any workstation that is part of the LDC system.
From the point of view of an application, each device managed by the LDC platform appears as a network device regardless of how it is physically connected to a workstation.
The LDC itself is written in the Java programming language and is embedded in the Java runtime environment. This does not mean the LDC can only be used by Java applications however as it also contains a web service interface, which make LDC functionality available in the form of a web service. This means all applications capable of using web services can also use the LUTZWOLF© LDC.
Applications wanting to access bank terminals are assisted by the LDC since it handles all issues related to device connectivity. The LDC itself implements the J/XFS infrastructure (Java eXtensions for Financial Services) for device access but conceals the J/XFS details from the application programmer to a great extent so that access to devices is as simple as possible. Especially in the areas of configuration and system management, the LDC provides a much faster interface for application programmers with far greater possibilities.
