    Default new to hardware programming

    Hi?

    I have been taking some java basics classes and i think I have understood some of the basics. I have been able to write some small applications connected to databases.

    I now want to move to writing programs for some hardware devices. right now i have a fingerprint reader that i want to write a simple application for where its recordes the time when one swipes his finger in a database.

    I am new to this so if you have links or info to help me do this it will be very helpful to me.

    Any help greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in Advance.

    I'd suggest you do a google for a third party library that works with the hardware you're using. Otherwise, it's not going to be easy. You'd have to figure out how the data comes in- as an image? Raw data? Something else? Then you'd have to figure out how to get to it, and then what to do with it to turn it into meaningful information. But hopefully you can find a third party library instead.
