Honeywell scanner integration

  

Hello All,

We have a requirment to integrate thirdparty scanner (hardware) in outsystems.

The honeywell provided library and sample iOS code  in following link to scan the barcode.

https://www.honeywellaidc.com/site/HoneywelliOS/Thank-You-SDK-Request2.html

Please advise how to acheive the integration from outsystems platform.


Thanks,

Srinivas J

Hello Srinivas,

My first try would be to use an existing Cordova implementation to read data from the scanner before losing time building a custom plugin with a specific SDK.

https://github.com/don/BluetoothSerial

Usb/Serial will be a harder task, you need to fork this plugin and change it to notify you when you have data available.

Hello Silva,

Thanks for the information.

There is scanner API readily available for that honeywell hardware (scanner device). so requirement is to use  that one to read barcode.  

please guide us how to implement corodova plugin using the existing available api for iOS.

later we can use the corodova plugin to integrate with the outsystems.

Hello Srinivas,

That will be a not so short task, but you can follow-up this

https://medium.com/hypertrack/building-a-cordova-plugin-for-your-native-sdk-174f1d7d20ca

 where they show how they build something like what you want, a plugin based in a native SDK.

Hi Nuno,

In your experience, how would you see the Serial plugin be implemented, would it be a extension, or would it lend itself to creation as a plugin according to the documentation?

Should you have an example of this implementation, could you please share it?

Thanks
