Mobile Provider Development
The Device Service Provider Interface (DSPI) is an abstraction layer for the Microsoft BizTalk RFID runtime to communicate with and manage RFID (radio frequency identification) devices uniformly. The DSPI defines a set of contractual interfaces or abstract classes that enable device abstraction. When independent hardware vendors (IHVs) implement these abstract classes of the DSPI, their devices can work with BizTalk RFID and expose various device functions to higher layers of BizTalk RFID. The code that implements the DSPI classes is called a device provider, or just a provider. A provider developer authors providers for devices.
This section discusses how a provider developer can design and implement providers for BizTalk RFID Mobile devices.
