Item description for Smart Card Application Development Using Java by Uwe Hansmann...
In today's world, smart cards play an increasingly important role in everyday life. We encounter them as credit cards, loyalty cards, electronic purses, health cards, and as secure tokens for authentication or digital signature. Their small size and the compatibility of their form with the magnetic stripe card make them ideal carriers of personal information such as secret keys, passwords, customization profiles, and medical emergency information. This book provides a guide for the rapid development of smart card applications using Java and the OpenCard Framework. It gives you the basic information you need about smart cards and how they work. It shows in detail how to develop applications that use smart cards by guiding you through examples step by step. A smart card provided with the book will help you to quickly get some first hands-on experience.

Reviews - What do customers think about Smart Card Application Development Using Java?
Overprice, Underweight Apr 19, 2008
For the price of this book (which I see has now gone up even more!) there's too little of substance here. This is a very thin book with too much space taken up telling us how smart cards are used in industry, business, etc. all of which has nothing to do with getting smart cards going in *your* application. If you needed convincing that smart cards are useful for business applications you wouldn't be looking for this book, would you?
If you are an absolute beginner with smart cards you may get some useful tidbits of information here, but I don't think there's anything here you couldn't find through a couple hours of research via Google or from any smart card manufacturer's documentation. If this was a low cost beginning tutorial it might be of some value at one-fourth or one-fifth of its current price.
Smart card application development using Java Oct 30, 2006
I bought this book looking for a deeper reference regarding Javacard applets, native code in smartcards and so on. Neverthless I found the book very useful in the off-card stuff, because it explains in a very clear way how to access the terminal, send APDU's, etc., always using the Open Card Framework which is very important for us Java developers. I strongly recommend this if you are developing applications in Java that must access smartcards, but if you're developing also the on-card software, let's say the Javacard applets, then you must also get the book from Zhiqun Chen also available in this site.
This is the only book that explains the OCF in details... Feb 27, 2000
As a person who is concerning in developing javacards via OCF, found this one very useful due to contents that it has on framework. You could get and develop off-card apps, if it does make sense to you..
Too heavy based on OCF Feb 12, 2000
The important thing that I notice is that the book is too heavily based on the Open Card framework. I needed instead a book on java card first. Only found some tutorials on the net until now.
