The sample source code below will show how to generate barcodes in Java using ByteScout Cloud API.

It is also possible to read barcodes using Java and Cloud API.

POST/GET endpoint:

https://bytescout.io/v1/barcode/generate

Code Sample:

import Bytescout\Client\API.*;
import Bytescout\Client\API.auth.*;
import Bytescout\Client\API.model.*;
import Bytescout\Client\API.api.DefaultApi;

import java.io.File;
import java.util.*;

public class DefaultApiExample {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        ApiClient defaultClient = Configuration.getDefaultApiClient();
        
        // Configure API key authorization: api_key
        ApiKeyAuth api_key = (ApiKeyAuth) defaultClient.getAuthentication("api_key");
        api_key.setApiKey("YOUR API KEY");
        // Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)
        //api_key.setApiKeyPrefix("Token");

        DefaultApi apiInstance = new DefaultApi();
        String name = name_example; // String | Filename for the generated image.
        String type = type_example; // String | Barcode type.

            SingleResponseModel result = apiInstance.barcodeGeneratePost(name, type, value);
            System.out.println(result);
        } catch (ApiException e) {
            System.err.println("Exception when calling DefaultApi#barcodeGeneratePost");
