Barcode Recognition in Java
The Avapose Java Barcode reader is 100% written in Java and support JDK 1.4.2 and higher. The barcode recognition library is the best Java barcode image reading component in the market. We provide full functionality to read most popular barcode standards such as Code128, Code39, EAN/UPC, GS1 barcode, USPS Postal barcode, Deutsche Post Identcode barcode, Royal Mail barcode as well as 2D barcodes QR Code, PDF417 and Data Matrix.
This barcode reader library for Java is able to decode linear and 2D barcodes from scanned documents, stream or image files such as BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF and Java AWT image objects in your Java applications.
The Java barcode image recognition component detects barcodes very fast and read barcodes accurately. It returns a string value for each decoded linear and 2D barcode images. With advanced barcode recognition algorithms detection, it is able to read linear and two dimensional barcode images at any position and orientation.
Bar Code Image Decoder SDK for Java Feature List
  • Easily add advanced barcode reading functionality to Java applications in Swing, Applet, Java Bean and J2SE
  • Compatible with embedding barcode recognition features into Java Server Side Environment like JSP, Servlet, J2EE and Web Service
  • Barcode image recognition SDK for Java with full Jar files are combined into the Java reader package
  • Read most common linear/1D and 2D barcode types in an image such as Code 128, Code 39, GS1 barcode, EAN/UPC, Postal barcodes, QR Code, Data Matrix and PDF417
  • Returns a string value for each decoded barcode images using the Java barcode reader SDK
  • Read barcodes from stream as well as image files like GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF files and Java AWT image objects
  • Detect barcode types automatically and decode barcodes accurately
  • Read both linear and two dimensional barcode images as fast as the system can process
  • Automatically detect the barcodes position and read barcodes at any orientation
  • Uses in decoding barcodes from camera scanned images, automatically sorting scanned pages and decoding barcodes in separator pages in batch scanning jobs.
  • Supports 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems by using this barcode reader for Java environment
Add Java barcode recognition API to Java applications to read barcodes
It is really easy to scan and read linear and two dimensional barcodes in images by using the Avapose barcode recognition Java toolkit. The below steps is a brief guide to use the Java barcode reader SDK.

1. Download the barcode reading Java component package from the following download link
2. Unzip the Java barcode reader package and copy the barcode reader jar file to your Java project classpath
3. Use the below sample code to tell the Java barcode reader class where the barcode image file is and what the barcode type is

String[] datas = File("C:/barcode.jpg"), BarcodeReader.Code39);

4. Pass the barcode image file and barcode type to the Java barcode reader, which will return the barcode data value
