Goal

This Note is a Quick Reference to build a Paper Report with a Barcode JavaBean.

Important Information for Version 11g : The steps in this document are related to the barcode java bean. Reports Version 11g has a very important enchancement in this area and these steps are not required if you are using (or if you upgrade to) version 11g. Release 11g of Reports on linux/unix platforms can read font metric information directly from the ttf files just like Windows platforms and there are barcode available as ttf files for Windows that can be used instead. For more details please see :

Note:852698.1 "How to Use TTF Fonts for Font Metrics On Unix With Reports 11g?"

If you are using Reports version 10gR2 and below
or
if you are using Reports 11g and desire to use the barcode bean as in 10.1.2.x ,

please continue with the steps below in this document
