You required J2SE (Applet/Swing/AWT/Core Java) components for that. Usually Scanning Device Manufacturer provides APIs to integrate their device in other application. Just contact manufacturer and ask for API to access scanning functionality from Java.

Thanks for reply.
I have a question here. Hope someone can help me out.
I need a OCR support in my system, I found that OCR API is not available free. Is there someone had developed some systems that using OCR API before? Can I develop an OCR myself? or where can I get references?

Thanks you for viewing my post and reply.
