BBM Barcode Scanning Integration

Is there a way to integrate the barcode scanning feature on BBM with another app or the web browser?


Is it possible to make an app that you can click on a barcode or select it and then press Menu > join group instead of having to scan the barcode from another screen?


Is there a way to join BBM groups and add other contacts by their barcode, directly from the web broswer or a blackberry app?


Apps such as Scanlife barcode reader and NeoReader scan barcodes but when you scan a BBM barcode it tries to take you to the internet to an invalid url.


Thank you in advance for your help.
