Calypsonet Terminal Card API

Version 1.0 of the documentation is no longer actively maintained. The site that you are currently viewing is an archived snapshot. For up-to-date documentation, see the latest version.

The Calypsonet Terminal Card API defines the internal elements shared by the reader layer to implement specific card layers (like the Calypso Card layer).

Limitations & constraints

The Card API doesn’t allow to request the transmission to a card of the APDU commands “Select Application by DF Name” or “Get Response”:

  • the selection of a specific card application could be managed only through a Card Selection Request.
  • the APDU response status words 61XYh & 6CXYh are automatically handled by the reader layer library by issuing a Get Response or by re-issuing the previous command with the expected ‘Le’ field.

Implementations & API Documentation

The third version number (x.y.z) only concerns updates of the javadoc because this component does not contain any implementation, but only an API. Therefore, it is recommended to always perform a dynamic import as described above in order to have the most up-to-date documentation.
