ConnectCode, a leading provider of barcode software and fonts, today announced the release of a new version of ConnectCode Barcode Fonts (v8.1). This new version adds a programming library in the Java platform to help third-party applications create professional quality barcodes.
The Java library allows the generation of over 23 types of commonly-used barcodes including:
Code 39 (and Extended)
Code 128 (A, B, C and Auto)
UCCEAN (GS1 128)
Universal Product Code A - UPCA
Universal Product Code E - UPCE
International Article Number 13 - EAN13 (European Article Number)
International Article Number 8 - EAN8 (European Article Number)
Interleaved 2 of 5 (I2of5)
Industrial 2 of 5
GS1 Databar 14
GS1 Databar Truncated
GS1 Databar Limited
The Java library also provides capabilities to generate check characters, add barcode Human Readable Text and validate input data to meet various industry specifications. It supports the Java Development Kit 1.6 (and onwards) and works out-of-the-box with Integrated Development Environments such as Netbeans and Eclipse.
The Java library uses the proven ConnectCode Barcode Fonts engine which is popular with many Fortune 500 companies. The engine neither depends heavily on the programming environment nor requires intensive graphics operations. Instead, a slight manipulation of existing text is usually sufficient to produce robust barcodes.
Moreover when a barcode font is printed, it rasters to the resolution of the printer and will not be limited to the resolution of the computer screen. This allows the highest quality barcodes that meet the strictest ISO requirements and specifications to be created.
ConnectCode Barcode Fonts are licensed flexibly as follows:
Single User License
Allows the use of the Software by one user on one computer within the organization.

Single Distribution License
