Well this isn't quite feasible :(

I'm involved with developing an E-Commerce system, the back-end
runs on UNIX (though it could run on any platform) and we were
thinking of encrypting the merchant transactions using something
like GPG.

The client (which the merchant runs to design the catalogue,
upload catalogue data, download transaction logs etc) is written
in Java so it will be multiplatform. To download their transaction
logs it would be nice to have a GPG Java version.

Looks like we maay have to use PGP :(
