pdf417 tag for coldfusion

I am in need of a pdf417 (2d barcode) image generator.  It can't be an activex control.

Any suggestions?

http://barbecue.sourceforge.net/ - free java based barcode genrator - very  good and pretty easy to use.

Here is some sample text that is used to generate barcode in the iText format (already in CF7 as the reportgenerator requires it):

<cfparam name="fileName" type="string" default="/tmp/pdf_#createUUID()#.pdf">
<cfparam name="barcode" type="string" default="0000154000607064">
<cfparam name="invbarcode" type="string" default="OESALES1000001157">
<CFSCRIPT>
      pageSize = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.PageSize").init();
    document = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.Document").init(pageSize.LETTER, 36, 36, 36, 36);
    pdfFile = createObject("java", "java.io.FileOutputStream").init(fileName);
    writer = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.pdf.PdfWriter").getInstance(document, pdfFile);
      FontFactory = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.FontFactory");
      
      barcode = ucase(barcode);
      
      document.open();
      
      cb = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.pdf.PdfContentByte");
      cb = writer.getDirectContent();
      
      code128 = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.pdf.Barcode128");
    code128.setCode("#invbarcode#");
    code128.setStartStopText(false);
      
      Color = createObject("java", "java.awt.Color");
    image128 = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.Image");
      image128 = code128.createImageWithBarcode(cb, Color.black, Color.black);
      
      rectangle = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.Rectangle").init(code128.getBarcodeSize());
      bar128X = rectangle.width();
      
      rectangle = pageSize.LETTER;
      letterX = rectangle.width();
      
      loc = (letterX - (bar128X + 75));
      
      p1 = createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.Paragraph").init("");
      p1.add(createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.Phrase").init(createObject("java","com.lowagie.text.Chunk").init(image128, loc, 0)));
      document.add(p1);
      
      document.add(createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.Paragraph").init("* I N V O I C E *", FontFactory.getFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA_BOLD, javacast("float", 28.0) )));
      document.add(createObject("java", "com.lowagie.text.Paragraph").init(" "));
      
      document.close();
</cfscript>

That should be more than enough for you to get on with.
