PaymentNet Releases Java-Based Transaction Client

PaymentNet this week announced the release of a new Java-based interface for its e-commerce payment processing service. The new transaction processing client is available free from the PaymentNet Web site for Solaris and Windows NT platforms.

The transaction processing client features enhanced payment performance, security and stability. This enables businesseses that are currently developing Java-based applications to link their back-office processing systems to Internet store fronts.

The new implementation is especially suited for enterprise-class applications where Java is used to interface between an Internet storefront and back-office functions. The Java-based client was written in C++ using a Java Native Interface (JNI).

The PaymentNet service provides the first system which enables full-function, real-time processing of consumer checks without requiring the generation of a paper draft to be submitted to a merchant bank. By using TeleCheck, the service delivers real-time processing, along with fraud screening, authorization and merchant guarantee service.
