    Default Re: cash drawer

    I would like to re-open this thread.

    I am attempting to pop a cash drawer open from an Acer Iconia 500 android tablet (android v3.2) with an on-board usb port that runs in host mode.

    When plugging devices such as a mouse, keyboard or cc wedge they immediately function as expected.

    The cash drawer can be either a JAYŽ Electronic Cash Drawer Model 5-135 with an external usb to rj11 adapter
    -OR-
    a JAYŽ Electronic Cash Drawer Model 5-130 with onboard usb adapter (comes with drivers providing the functionality below:
    The software acts like it is connected through a serial COM port. The POS system application software needs to allow installation & interfacing w/ this open, contemporary interface method.)

    So with it being a unix environment I am thinking the following:
    1. Mount the device (based on previous peripherals, I believe it will auto mount)
    2. Open a connection to device
    3. Send Open Drawer Signal/Command
    4. Close connection

    Please advise.

    Thanks in advance

    This post had nothing to offer a 2 year old thread, and has been moved to a thread of it's own.

    Do you have some question about what you describe here?

    jps - Thanks for bumping this into a new thread.

    When I implement the openComm class from previous cash drawer thread, I get the following errors in LogCat:
    10-11 21:10:26.810: I/dalvikvm(1525): Could not find method javax.comm.CommPortIdentifier.getPortIdentifiers, referenced from method com.MyDomain.MyProject.AppClasses.openPort.main
    10-11 21:10:26.810: W/dalvikvm(1525): VFY: unable to resolve static method 207: Ljavax/comm/CommPortIdentifier;.getPortIdentifiers ()Ljava/util/Enumeration;

    openPort Src:
    Previous Thread: cash drawer

    The methods appear in eclipse Intellisense when typing the command: CommPortIdentifier. however when it runs on the tablet it indicates that it is not found.
