I am currently working on webworks, and I try to use a barcode reader.
I use the last OS (6.0). So I have different questions :
Thanks for yours answers.

Bar code scanning can be accomplished on the BlackBerry smartphone. In 6.0 the ZXing library is built into the device. On 5.0 you need to explicitly include the bar code scanner code from the ZXing open source project.
We currently have the Barcode scanning API up next to tackle for WebWorks.

Hard to tell on when it will be available. The source code will be available in github before it is officially released.
We will be developing the API in the open, so be sure to look for API signature reviews and other updates in the contributor's forum.

I am working on an app that reads 1-D barcodes (not QR Codes)
is barcode scanning supported using any current webworks app (5.0 or 6.0)
or do I have to use traditional Java development?
You mentioned barcode API included in 6.0, is that for Java only?
Can I use the ZXing API inside a webworks app?
Thanks for your help.

A barcode extension has been published in Github as a community API
Follow the instructions listed in the README to install and use this extension.

I will try to implement this. I am new to webworks.
If it is HTML database-what encryption will it support?
I donot see any code related to HTML database in my current WW SDK installation. BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 22.214.171.124.
