Information Technology - Biometric Application Programming Interface - Java (BioAPI Java)



The proposed standard will specify an interface of a BioAPI Java framework and BioAPI Java BSP and
BioAPI BFP that will mirror the corresponding components specified in ISO/IEC 19784-1. Therefore,
the position occupied by the proposed standard within the general picture of biometrics standards
will be the same position that ISO/IEC 19784-1 occupies, the only difference being the programming
language of the interfaces. The concepts such as BioAPI unit, component registry, etc. are present in
this standard and will have the same meaning as in ISO/IEC 19784-1. The semantic equivalence of
this standard will be maintained with ISO/IEC 19784-1, but there are differences in actual
parameters passed between functions and the sequence of function calls. These differences exist to
take advantage of the object oriented benefits of Java.
