I have an internet center where customers come and use internet for a limited amount of time and pay according to the number of hours or minutes they used Internet. Checking the starting and ending time of a customer is manual and is not convenient. I would like to create a java program that:
- prevents users from all other services on the windows computers (it's the only program running on the computer when no customer is logged in)
- from which the customer can send a request to the central server where its starting time is registered
- stops the customer when the amount of time he requested is over.
I am beginning to program in java and I want to know where to get started. Any suggestions about an existing software that does the same job is very welcome.
