Many barcode scanners that are made to work with PCs can plug into a keyboard input.  When you scan the barcode, the barcode number gets inputted as if the user had typed it in with a keyboard.  This can make it very easy to integrate it with you application.

Just for information: the bar-code is likely to be replaced by RFID tags in all big stores/ retail markets:

Sun is also supporting it, 'coz the biggest retailers like Walmart, Metro wanna adopt RFID ASAP.
