The main topics of this document concern the best practices in the development of a Hoplink software in a terminal. This set of recommendations is complementary with the Hoplink specification which already includes a chapter related to the terminal specifications.
Requirements in the specifications are mandatory to ensure interoperability, when the best practices provide operational advices on their implementation.
Before detailing these best practices, the document reminds the key features of Hoplink and gives information for a general understanding.
