boox Publisher's description
The first commercial activity to be computerised was finance.
The first commercial activity to be computerised was finance. Book-keeping was mechanised even before the invention of the digital computer - businesses had comptometers and mechanical accounting machines; the accounts office of a large corporation had a separate machine room where - in today's health and safety climate - ear defenders would certainly be compulsory. So, as the cost of computing has fallen, the cost of keeping accounts should have fallen to the point where it is almost zero cost. But, for various reasons, it hasn't. Accounts office machine rooms may be a thing of the past, but accounting is still expensive
Not with Boox, though. Drop the Boox jar into your classpath and configure a database, and you've got straightforward access to accounting operations.
The essential process in Boox is to create a Transaction object and call its post() method. The Currency, Money, Account, Ledger and Journal classes do pretty much what they say, and access control is managed through a Clerk object. The Boox class provides a range of useful static methods, avoiding the need to instantiate objects, and the API is completed by two interfaces, Auditable and AuditElement. If you understand double-entry book-keeping, Boox does what it says: but you do need to be able to program in Java to use it.
