Java Codabar Introduction
Codabar is also known as Codeabar, Ames Code, NW-7, Monarch, Code 2 of 7, Rationalized Codabar, ANSI/AIM BC3-1995 or USD-4.
Codabar is a linear barcode symbology developed in 1972 by Pitney Bowes Corp.It was designed to be accurately read even when printed on dot-matrix printers for multi-part forms such as FedEx airbills and blood bank forms, where variants are still in use as of 2007.
Codabar symbology is used by U.S. blood banks, photo labs, and on FedEx airbills. Because Codabar is self-checking, it does not define a check digit. This symbology starts and finishes with one of four possible characters A, B, C, or D.
Under java_barcode_trial package, copy barcode folder to your java servlet container like tomcat.
Restart tomcat. Now you have installed successfully.
To test your installation, open your web browser and navigate to: http://YourDomain:Port/barcode/linear?Data=123456789&Type=CODABAR
To create barcode image in your JSP or html page, you need pass the url to IMG tag src value. For example, <img src="http://YourDomain:Port/barcode/linear?Data=123456789&Type=CODABAR" /> Using this method, it will not generate any barcode images in your server side.
The second method is to generate barcode images in your server side.
Create a barcode image in server side, like Linear linear = new Linear(); linear.setData("123456789"); linear.setType(Linear.CODABAR); linear.renderBarcode("C:/Tools/Tomcat 5.5/webapps/YourWebApp/barcode-images/barcode.gif");
In your JSP or HTML page, you need use IMG tag to display generated image, like <img src="http://YourDomain:Port/YourWebApp/barcode-images/barcode.gif" />
