Client needs to take a user’s picture when printing user ID cards and automatically embed that within a web-based application.
Designed a Java applet that loaded the required drivers to communicate with the webcam and displayed it as a viewport within the web application. When the operator is satisfied, they click on a button to take a picture which automatically encodes the picture and sends it to the database without having to manually browse the file system, locate the new file, then upload it.
Training an operator to create user ID cards is now a much less time consuming and error prone process, and the turn around time is drastically reduced.
