Vero Beach, FL - Friday, October 12th, 2001: Deep Sky Technologies, Inc., today announced the release of the second public beta of eTrans for Macintosh and Windows. eTrans is a 4th Dimension component which provides a simple, consistent interface to online credit card authorization service providers. Using eTrans, 4th Dimension developers can build credit card authorization services into their 4D databases in a matter of minutes.
With eTrans, credit card and electronic check processing can be added to 4D applications with as little as four (4) lines of code. Switching between gateway processors requires a change in only a single line of code when using the eTrans component. This is ideal for vertical market applications where the processing of credit cards and electronic checks would be a value added feature for end customers.
This new beta adds support for WorldPay as a payment gateway. As well, multi-currency support has been added through the online gateway routines available from both PlanetPayment and WorldPay.
Currently, eTrans supports processing of transactions through the following provider services online:
Other gateway providers will be supported in future releases of the eTrans component.
The beta, officially called v1.0.0b06, for eTrans is open to the public. The eTrans beta archive contains serialization for using the component through the end of October 2001. A full manual, explaining every call and feature available in eTrans, is included with the component.
