We need a tool developed either in Flash or Java (if you know another language that might work let us know) that allows a user to scan (TWAIN) from major browsers such as Firefox, IE, Safari, Chrome. We currently have an activex control that works for IE, but not in any other browser.
Basically, it needs to scan images either 1 at a time or using ADF (automatic document feeder) and upload the scans to the server.
For an example, check out JTWAIN at [url removed, login to view] (the demo worked on my XP machine, but not Vista)

I think that it that is necessary for you possible to make as signed Java-applet. But possibly will be necessary some native component that will make such solution dependently from the system.
ActiveX COM Control is only working for IE. For cross browser compatibility you should use Java/Applet method. On Vista, this need a special trick on handling TWAIN.
I have experience creating java digitalization applications, using twain and sane (multiplatform). I can provide you a demo, please let me know it. Thanks !
