  • Supports most established barcode standards and barcode specifications.
  • Ability to read & export barcodes in multiple image formats including BMP, GIF, JPEG & PNG.
  • Provides full control over barcode images including background color, bar color, image quality, rotation angle, x-dimension, resolution and more.
  • Complete control over barcode captions including caption font, back color, fore color, alignment, and location.
  • Support for checksum.
  • Support for X-dimension & Y-dimension for 2D BarCodes.
  • Support for Wide to Narrow Ratio for supported symbologies.
  • Support for DataMatrix barcode with X12, EDIFACT & Base 256 encoding.

Barcode Recognition Features

  • Can read most common 1D, 2D barcodes anywhere at any angle from an image.
  • Specify an area in the image to scan the barcode
  • Get region information for the barcodes recognized in the image

Barcode Imaging Features

Get Started with Aspose.BarCode for PHP via Java

Install PHP application into J2SE

  1. Install Java 1.7 or above
  2. Install PHP 7.0 or above into the operating system PATH.
  3. Put aspose-barcode-php-xx.x.jar to certain location, for example folder 'jar'
  4. Launch the JavaBridge by command "%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java" -Djava.ext.dirs=../jar -jar JavaBridge.jar SERVLET_LOCAL:8888 where -Djava.ext.dirs=../jar points to the location of aspose-barcode-php-xx.x.jar You can appoint a port by your choice. We use 8888 just for example to differ from standard servers port numbers.
  5. Test the connection to JavaBridge http://localhost:8888/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc
  6. Deploy php files from folder lib to your web application on webserver For example to C:/xampp/htdocs/Barcode
  7. Add require statement to your php code require_once("http://localhost:8888/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc"); You can find example in examples/php_side/test_assist.php file.
  8. Now you can use the PHP API supplied by Aspose.Barcode PHP classes.

Install PHP application by using Tomcat

  1. Download and install original Apache Tomcat software and copy JavaBridge.war to its autodeploy folder. For example you can install Tomcat like C:/apache-tomcat-9.0.37 and copy JavaBridge.war to webapps folder of TomcatC:/apache-tomcat-9.0.37/webapps.
  2. Run C:/apache-tomcat-9.0.37/bin/startup.bat, JavaBridge.war will be deployed to C:/apache-tomcat-9.0.37/webapps/JavaBridge.
  3. Copy aspose-barcode-php-xx.x.jar to lib folder, such as C:/apache-tomcat-9.0.37/webapps/JavaBridge/WEB-INF/lib. Restart Tomcat.
  4. Test http://localhost:8080/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc to ensure that PHP works fine.
  5. Deploy php files from the folder 'lib' to your web application on webserver For example to C:/xampp/htdocs/Barcode
  6. Add 'require' statement to your php code require_once("http://localhost:8080/JavaBridge/java/Java.inc"); You can find example in examples/php_side/test_assist.php file.
  7. Now you can use the PHP API supplied by Aspose.Barcode PHP classes.

You can find the installation instructions for php/Java bridge on http://php-java-bridge.sourceforge.net/pjb/installation.php.
