Fingerprint Reader on the NetBeans Platform

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager
I've come across a whole bunch of new (to me, anyway) NetBeans Platform applications in the past few weeks. Mostly commercial applications. While working on interviews with the related developers, I'm also gathering their cool screenshots for inclusion in our evergrowing NetBeans Platform Showcase.

Here's one of them, from Fermax Electronica SAE, a company specializing in audio and video door entry systems. The application is designed to manage an Access Control installation based on thermal fingerprint readers, manufactured by Fermax:

Pretty cool stuff and I'm interested in finding out more about thermal fingerprint readers and how that works with Java, aren't you? That's what the interview will spend some time on, so watch this space (and NetBeans Zone) for that interview in the coming days! (Update: here it is.)

In other news. Read Building an OSGi declarative service with Maven using NetBeans, by Kayode Odeyemi, published this week in his blog.

    It looks like commercial software for which you need to pay money, doesn't it? And it's a blog entry written 6 years ago... so... hmmm.
