Building Barcode4J


This page tells you how to build Barcode4J.


Barcode4J requires J2SE 1.5 at compile time, but works with J2SE 1.4 at run time.


Go to the directory where you placed Barcode4J and run the Ant build script ("ant" on Windows, "./" on Unix).

If all goes well, this creates a "build" directory which now contains several things:

  • barcode4j.jar: The barcode package
  • barcode4j-light.jar: A reduced barcode package without dependency on Avalon Framework.
  • barcode4j.war: The sample web application with the sample servlet
  • the "docs" directory: This directory contains the generated Javadocs
