Hi there, 

 

                Barcode API is introduced in bb 6.0, go through the link below and run the sample application.

 

   http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/How-to-use-the-Barcode-API/ta-p/574569

 

this code runs fine for Blackberry 6.0, but for earlier versions u might need some third party APIs like 

 

one provided by google.zxing, go to the link below and download the APIs and use the classes.
