1. To contact your " fingerprint sacnner" company asking about any software interface or they may have provide APIs in C++ or java.

2. Also asking your provider about their scanner can support whatever your hardware have. I believe this will be an issue.

3. If they provide any API( C++ or Java) and ask them "Do they have a sample codes how to use their apis ?" Also ask them after scanned fingerprint can convert to what kinds of image files (gif, jpg.....).

We have an existing application for warehouse using regular scanners to scan all kinds boxes and also coded in jsf(jsp)/oracle/WS/JMS.
