This is a desktop client that encompasses the fingerprinting capability. It is based on a javaFX frame work with the all scanner classes packed into an executable jar file.
We have targeted windows operating system in this particular update (preferably windows 10).
A working URL instance of the previously set OpenMRS server with biometrics module installed
Verifinger DLLs (NBiometricClient.dll, NBiometrics.dll, NCore.dll, NDevices.dll, NdmMedia.dll, Neurotec.dll, NLicensing.dll, NMedia.dll, NMediaProc.dll)
Scanner DLLs (depending on the scanner being used e.g NdmDigitalPersonaUareU.dll for Digital Persona UareU, NdmFutronic.dll for Futronic)
A working fingerprint Scanner (Digital Persona UareU or Futronic) with scanner drivers installed (Preferably futronic FS80).
A working instance of GIT
A working instance of MAVEN
Java development kit( 8+)
We have tested with two device models:
Digital Persona URU4500
Both devices work well to support scanning but Futronic FS80 performs better when compared to Digital Persona URU4500.
NB: Scanner DLLs and Verifinger DLLs should be copied into java bin folder
1. Compiling/packaging Neurotec jar files to .m2 directory
- Download verifinger trial SDK and extract the zip file
Run the following command inside the root folder of SDK
Change directory to samples folder inside the SDK main directory and run
Change directory to Biomterics/Java folder inside samples folder
2. Compiling Biometrics Client
NB: Before compiling biometrics-client please ensure you have a jfxrt.jar file in java bin directory.
Clone the git repository i.e
Change directory to biometrics-client using
Maven Compile using
The above command will create an executable jar file inside target folder named mUzima-scanner.
NB: It is recommended to create a .bat file with and copy the following content to it.
The .bat and .jar files should be placed in the same location, then you can place a shortcut to .bat file on the desktop or anywhere easily accessible.
Launching Biometrics Client
Launching of the biometrics-client will be by double clicking the .bat file or .bat shortcut link.
