Dear Friends,

I want to create a barcode image gif file using iText. I google but I found the code which creates image in PDF but my requirement is to create barcode gif/jpg image file.
If someone having the code please share.

We don't actually do that here. We will help you write the code yourself (if we can), but nobody should simply provide you a solution, nor should you expect it.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

The above code gives me the barcode as image but is that an open source?

iText is licensed under the GPL (iText 1 and 2) or AGPL (iText 5) license, which are generally not considered Open Source licenses, but Free licenses. That effects how you can use them. The AGPL in particular has strings attached that make it generally unsuitable for business use.

I have generated the barcode using the inbuild features of iReport.
Thank you friends for all your efforts.
