Microsoft® POS for .NET SDK version 1.1 and .NET Runtime 1.1 July 16, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Interesting Reads.
Microsoft POS for .NET is a class library that is part of Microsoft Windows Embedded for Point of Service and the SDK can be used to create Point Of Service applications and Service Objects. The class library provides .NET applications with a simple and consistent interface for communicating with Point of Service (POS) peripheral devices, such as bar code scanners, magnetic card readers, receipt printers, and so on. In addition, POS for .NET includes a set of programming interfaces and base classes for vendors of POS peripheral devices. These interfaces and classes help vendors write software components, or service objects, for their devices.
My take; Embedded point of sales developers will now be able to utilize .NEt objects and native development for their environments. Very nice.
