Title
(EN) PURCHASE MANAGER
(FR) GESTIONNAIRE D'ACHAT
Abstract
(EN)
Applications perform secure purchasing transactions through the purchase manager which interfaces the application with a purchase device using an indirection mechanism. The purchase manager is preferably associated with an operating system and provides an application program interface (API) with which the application communicates. The application issues commands through the application program interface and these commands are mapped for execution through a dispatch table forming part of the purchase device module. The dispatch table identifies functions within the purchase device module.

Des applications réalisent des opérations d'achat sécurisées, grâce au gestionnaire d'achat, qui établit une interface entre l'application et un dispositif d'achat, selon un mécanisme indirectionnel. Le gestionnaire d'achat est, de préférence, associé à un système opérationnel, et fournit une interface de programme d'application (API) avec laquelle l'application communique. L'application émet des commandes par l'API, et ces commandes sont mappées, pour être exécutées par une table de répartition faisant partie du module du dispositif d'achat. La table de répartition identifie les fonctions à l'intérieur du module du dispositif d'achat.
