Java Identcode Generator

Java Identcode Generation package to generate Identcode linear barcodes in Java applications.

  • High quality GIF & JPEG images are generated with class library, which do not contain distortion.

  • Easy integration into your Java IDEs.

  • Generate, create Identcode in Java class, Java bean, Servlet, EJB.

  • Java Identcode can be easily generated on any operating system with a JVM.

  • ¬†Orientation allows for changes among 0, 90, 180 or 270 degrees.

  • Java Identcode generator is compatible with JDK 1.4.0 or greater.

Java Identcode Generator - Overview

Java Identcode generator is a mature and reliable Java barcode generation component for creating Identcode barcodes in Java, Jasper Reports, iReport, and Eclipse BIRT projects. High-quality Identcode barcode images can be drawn and printed into GIF, BMP, PNG, JPEG/JPG & TIFF formats with Java Identcode barcode generator. Rich barcode options are provided to customize Identcode barcode properties in accordance with your needs.

Identcode information:

Identcode: also called Deutsche Post Identcode is commonly used by German post for mail tracking and can encode numeric digits 0 to 9 with 11-digit data length.

Available encoding data:


numeric digits: 0-9

11digits length only

The structure of a Identcode:

1. Mail center (outgoing, the first two chatacters)
2. Customer code(next two characters)
3. Delivery number(four characters)
4. Check digit


Java Identcode Generator Implementation to Generate Identcode

1. Generate Identcode in Java class with the changing of barcode properties.

// Create Java Identcode object
Identcode barcode = new Identcode();

// Set Identcode data text to encode
barcode.setData("23456789012");

// Generate Identcode barcode & print into Graphics2D object
//barcode.drawBarcode("Java Graphics2D object");

// Generate Identcode barcode & encode into GIF format
barcode.drawBarcode("C://barcode-identcode.gif");

// Generate Identcode barcode & encode into JPEG format
barcode.drawBarcode("C://barcode-identcode.jpg");

2. Generate & encode Identcode to EPS with changing the values concerned.

// Create Java Identcode object
Identcode barcode = new Identcode();

// Set Identcode data text to encode
barcode.setData("23456789012");

// Generate Identcode barcode & encode into EPS
barcode.drawBarcode2EPS("C://barcode-identcode.eps");

3. Generate & encode Identcode in html or jsp pages.

1. Copy barcode folder and its contents from demo package to Apache Tomcat.

2. Start Apache Tomcat, go to http://YourDomain:Port/barcode/barcode?DATA=23456789012&TYPE=identcode

3. Insert an image tag (img) into your page. For example,

<imgsrc="http://YourDomain:Port/barcode/barcode?DATA=23456789012&TYPE=identcode" />


4. Two ways to set the width and height of generated barcode Identcode image.
1. Set the values of the barcodeWidth and barcodeHeight properties.
or
2. Set X (bar module width) and Y (bar module height) values
