Java Barcode Overview

IDAutomation's Java barcode packages are provided in convenient JAR files. Each symbology type is combined into a single JAR file with the Applet, Servlet, Class Library, and GIF Encoder included. Additionally, source code is provided for the applets, graphic encoders, and servlets in each package.

Features

The following features of IDAutomation's Barcode Java components allow for easy integration into business applications:

  • Royalty-free with the purchase of a Developer License.
  • Applets are provided for easy integration of barcodes on webpages.
  • JavaBean support conforming to the JavaBean specification allows easy integration and customization in a developmental environment.
  • Servlets are included for server-side Java barcode image generation and are easy to embed in dynamic HTML as an image with the <IMG> tag and support Apache Tomcat.
  • Class libraries are provided for integration into Java applications.
  • High-quality images with GIF, JPEG, SVG and EPS support are generated that do not contain distortion.
  • Java container support is provided by the barcode classes, which are descendants of Java.awt.Canvas.
  • Automatic check digit calculations may be enabled or disabled for many linear symbologies.
  • Auto Sizing options automatically size the images for easier operation.
  • JDK 1.4 and above is supported. However, JDK 1.2 or greater is required for the servlet to generate JPEG files and JDK 1.3 is required to use MaxiCode in an application.
  • Headless Java compatibility allows images to be generated without a graphic environment in JDK 1.4 and above.
  • Integration with Oracle Reports may be implemented using IDAutomation's Java class files.
  • Code 128 autoencoding is provided for Code 128 in the linear package and supports UCC/EAN-128 barcodes including automatic identification of several AI's.
  • Orientation may be set to 0, 90, 180 or 270 degrees.
  • Flexible sizing options allow changes to the X dimension, wide to narrow ratio, barcode height, margins, and the white space between the bars in the bar code.
  • Text options allow the human-readable characters to be enabled or disabled. The human-readable interpretation is often disabled to allow placement of custom text formatting for specific applications.
  • Graphic configuration options include settings of the foreground and background colors and fonts for human-readable characters.
  • Supplements are supported for 2 and 5 digit EAN and UPC add-ons.
  • Supports UPS barcodes including compressed Maxicode.
  • USPS Intelligent Mail is supported as well as POSTNET, PLANET and EAN128.
  • Bearer bars may be easily created for ITF and all other linear barcode types.
  • White bar increase option increases the amount of white space in the symbol to improve readability in the linear version.IBM Partner Logo
  • Character grouping property places digits in groups of 3, 4 or 5 to improve readability of the text below the barcode.
  • Source code is provided for all applets, graphic encoders and servlets in the packages. The source code for the barcode generation classes should not be needed; however, they may be supplied with the purchase of the Unlimited Developer License and a signed Source Code License Agreement.
  • A hosted version is available to allow barcodes to be generated without installing any software. IDAutomation's Dynamic Barcode Generation Service is a fault-tolerant, hosted product that performs the same functions of the Java servlet. Barcodes are instantly generated and may be displayed in HTML with the IMG tag; parameters in the URL determine what is encoded. Try the online demo or review the user manual.
"We found the Java Package to be an easy integration into Oracle Reports and Oracle Forms, making a much easier implementation for barcodes."

Java Servlet ISPs and Hosted Services

To generate barcodes for web pages without installing any software, IDAutomation recommends the Dynamic Barcode Generation Service, which is a fault-tolerant, hosted product that performs the same functions of the Java servlet. Barcodes are instantly generated and may be displayed in HTML with the IMG tag; parameters in the URL determine what is encoded.
Try the online demo or review the user manual.

Applet Implementations

IDAutomation's Java applets are compatible with Netscape 4 and above, Internet Explorer 4 and above, FireFox, Opera HotJava or any other browser with a Java virtual machine. Please refer to the User Manual for the latest applet implementation information.

JPEG Encoder Example

High-quality GIF and JPEG images may be easily created with the included encoder. Below is a simple example of the Java source code used to create a JPEG file from the Linear Barcode Java Package:

import com.idautomation.linear.*;
import com.idautomation.linear.encoder.*;
class CreateJPEGFile {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        BarCode bc = new BarCode();
        bc.code = "123456789";
        bc.barType = bc.CODE128;
        barCodeEncoder bce = new barCodeEncoder(bc, "JPEG", "newfile.jpeg");
        System.exit(0);
    }
}

 Please refer to the User Manual for more detailed encoder examples.

Java Barcode Servlet Implementation Example:

Java Servlets are used to add barcode support to a dedicated web server. IDAutomation offers a tutorial for servlet implementation with Apache Tomcat. Please refer to the User Manual for other servlet implementations and additional information.

Easy integration into Oracle Reports

Review by John on 8/17/2007

We found the Java Package to be an easy integration into Oracle Reports and Oracle Forms, making a much easier implementation for barcodes.

It worked right out of the box.

Review by David on 7/1/2008

This is the only bar code software we could find that works reliably as an ActiveX and Java applet. Using the bar code Java applet in our web system eliminated the need for data entry.
