How to Stream Barcodes into iReport Designer
iReport Designer is an open source report designer that can be used with Jaspersoft Corporation’s JasperReports and JasperReports Server. iReports Designer allows users to design complex, sophisticated layouts which can include a range of valuable elements from charts, crosstabs and images as well. One little-known, but very valuable feature is the environment’s ability to utilize a dynamic web address to source an image for display onto a report. This is particularly useful in situations where a barcode needs to be displayed on a report for document tracking or automated data entry purposes.
IDAutomation’s technical support staff has worked hard to find an easy way to integrate barcode generation capability into iReport Designer, and we are pleased to release our latest tutorial. If iReport Designer is your environment of choice and you have a need to generate linear or 2D barcode images for your reports, we encourage you to test with a demo to use alongside this easy step-by-step tutorial. We also offer free pre-sales technical support, so you can always contact technical support with any questions you may have.
