Using the WMI API to Manage Devices (POS for .NET v1.14 SDK Documentation)


The WMI provider serves a WMI namespace called /root/MicrosoftPointOfService. This namespace defines four classes:

ServiceObject represents a POS for .NET Service Object from a management perspective. PosDevice represents the physical device serviced by the Service Object. LogicalDevice represents a logical name assigned to a PosDevice, providing third-party applications with the ability to access a Service Object without conflicting with other applications that may also be accessing the same Service Object. DeviceProperty instances are name/value pairs that can be associated with a PosDevice to store optional configuration data for Service Objects.
