    I'm new to Phonegap/AppBuilder and I have a quick question before I get started on an integration project.

    I have to build into my app a Credit Card reader. I have the reader and the SDK that comes from the company. The SDK is basically a JAR file designed for use in a native JAVA app.

    My question is, can I use a JAR file, like this one, in a Phonegap/AppBuilder app? Are there any showstoppers I'll run into, or can it work without issue?

    I did review the AppBuilder docs, and don't see any examples of this setup there.

    Thank you.

    Hello Jamus,

    In order to use your SDK you will have to create a plugin that will be able to expose its functionalities.
    More about this topic you can find at Cordova's documentation.
