I browse with the list of forums here but cant find which appropriate forum to post my question.
Kindly move this to the appropriate forum if it does not fit here.

I am required to create a program that will create or generate a barcode system given data from
the database.

I have seen this link that generates barcode. But I think this is not

I am not sure if there are project(s) or external libraries that was already built for this purpose. Kindly advise me if ever.

What exactly do you mean by "create or generate a barcode system"? What are the inputs and what are the outputs?

For example, the iText library can create PDF files containing barcodes.

Hi Mr Ulf,

Thanks so much for your reply. I have taken a look at the link you have given and I will explore it more.

Basically I am given a task to create a barcode in different format (e.g Code 39) given data from the database.

Also while browsing in the net, I have seen this link at the sourceforge list of

projects. I am off to exploring this two library(iText and Barbeque).

Again appreciate your reply.

I agree. Here's the link:
