I am working with a Java application. Now I am going to integrate a payment terminal that takes chipbased an dmagnetic cards. It is OPOS based.

1. What would be the best way to integrate it?
   JNI?
   Make a Web service out of the payment terminal program and access it that way from the Java part?

2. Where does the OPOS thing come in? I know there is JPOS. Is it working to go through JPOS instead or can I just skip the xPOS stuff all together or does that require the termina to expose a none POS based API?

I believe JPOS builds on OPOS so you should be able to use it
if you can't then JNI would be the way to go (assuming you have a native api)
