Barcode Reading and Printing  
Feb 11, 2004 12:20 PM



 
Hi,
I am trying to develop a Web Based Application (JSP, Servlets and JavaBeans) that does the following

1) When a user scans a barcode label, I need to scanned data to goto a text box on the JSP
2) A user enters customer data like name, addresss etc on a JSP page and on the click of the submit button, a barcode label needs to be generated.

Essentially I am looking for API's for BarCode Reading and BarCode Label Printing.

Any links, articles or code samples to do the above would be welcome.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I am also working in the Barcode reading stuff. I think, you must have done a progress in the same. If you send me the details (preferrable with the code) would be a great help.

One question here is,

To read the scanned information from scanner, how is the implementation done according you ?

Waiting for your favourable reply ASAP,

Thanks,

I have done something about barcode scanning and printing before...
you no need any api for your bar code scanner... as the scanner will
input the barcode as a standard input.... what you need is just install the barcode scanner and
the driver (at lease the barcode scanner i used before was like that :) , simple, isn't it ? )
the only things you need is the API for barcode printing... you can check on the link posted......

Thanks for your quick response.

My Barcode scanner is RS232 enabled one. It doesn't need any client side driver. What it does is, put the data in to the buffer through the port (before doing the same, port has to be opened). That buffer needed to be accessed and read the data and put the same on to the field where the cursor is pointing on.

All thease operation should carried out in the web-browser (atleast should work on Internet browser).

Please let me know, if you had worked on the same or any pointer for this...

Waiting for your favourable answer...ASAP...

Thanks,

A barcode is similar to any other font.

barcode input/reading:
The barcode scanner should handle this. Barcode scanners require certain types of barcode fonts. Scanning a barcode normally places the scanned value into the focused input area. Some scanners can also perform auto-enter after entering the data.

barcode fonts for printing:

What's the point of this requirement? It makes your project harder and doesn't add any benefit to it.
