Hi all, I have an idea of developing an application which requires a bar code to be scanned and the information of the item scanned to be gathered (i.e the meta data). I know there is a library which lets you scan barcodes, 'zxing' provided by Google. I have looked everywhere and can't seem to find an example of someone who has used the 'zxing' library (which I want to use) within Java in order to scan a barcode using an emulator. What I am looking for is a simple example to use the barcode scanner application or webcam to scan a bar code and be able to see what it gives you. Im not too fussed about getting the meta data but if this is possible (using some free service/server) then that would be great!! Is there anyone who has managed to use such software? If someone has used some other software then please share the ideas. I am using Eclipse as my IDE and aim to create my application in Java. Many thanks!!
