A similar question is handled in thread Bar Code Generation API from SUN. Also, check out Java Barcode API and ZXING.

Bar-code readers and servlets don't seem to have any relationship, not as far as I can see. But let's get a better problem description. What does your design look like? Are you going to be distributing bar-code readers to all the users of your web application?

Those all look like bar-code generation tools, rather than bar-code reading tools.

ZXing is both reading and writing, from what it says in the description. But you're right, the thread I referred to is about just generating bar codes; my mistake.

But still thanks for recommending these three barcode reading sdk providers. I will compare them and decide what to use finally.

Most of the barcode readers I've seen effectively behave like a keyboard. If you run Notepad or another editor and scan a barcode, what do you see appear in the editor?

If you see text as if you'd typed in the barcode's data instead of scanning it, then you should be able to get the data into your application easily enough in the same way as if the user was typing on a keyboard.
