The payment module has been extended in order to handle electronic cheques.
The following classes and interfaces have been added:
public class Cheque
public abstract class ChequePurse extends AccountBasedPurse
public interface ChequePurseServices extends AccountBasedPurseServices
public abstract class ChequeTransactionRecord extends PaymentTransactionRecord
The class Cheque has the following attributes:
Most cheque systems, like Mandate, will need more attributes, so in most cases the adapter
will have a class extending the Cheque class.
ChequePurse extends AccountBasedPurse with the methods
getNumberOfCheques allows the user to see how many blank cheques are left in the purse.
retrieveCheques() returns a Vector containing the cheques currently in the purse (received cheques).
ChequePurseServices extends AccountBasedPurseServices with the methods:
loadNewCheques() (similar to CashLikePurseService.withdraw())
endorseCheque() (send a received cheque to a third party)
