Quantum Thoughts

jPOS.org A very interesting software under GNU license.

Posted on: August 12, 2008

Lately I for a project involving a major Greek telco, I am in the seek for a good  ISO-8583 based financial transaction solution. So after some googling around I found and have been experimenting with jPOS. jPOS is “a Java® platform-based, mission-critical, ISO-8583 financial framework that can be customized and extended in order to implement financial interchanges”.


jPOS provides electronic payment and related solutions to retailers, payment processors and banks around the world.

Is considered the de-facto OpenSource implementation of the international ISO-8583 standard giving you greater strategic freedom and lower costs. We are in production use in over 70 countries processing literally thousands of transactions every single second, 7x24x365.

If eventually we go with this solution, I will be back on this,  with more comments and experiences from developement and production phases.

Licensing is under GNU AFFERO GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE for non commercial uses and a commercial license that includes support and consulting is also available.
