Barcode creation on linux with apache
Posted on 2004-03-23
First, let me apologise if this is the wrong area to post this, but here goes. I am writing a web application for a client who manages many properties to students. Part of the brief was to include the option of barcode scanning. Basically he wants to be able to take his laptop and a barcode reader (Datalogic P51 Pen) to a particular house and be able to scan a barcode which will return the house details. Now that part is under control, my question is when a new house is added to the database, the company will need to create some barcode lables. I would prefer it if the barcodes could be displayed in the web browser and generated from data held in a MySQL database. Does anyone have any ideas about software which could be used or anywhere that has some good documentation regarding the problem. The server will be running Apache so if it could intergrate with Apache, even better.
