I am looking for some free libraries that will allow me to create and read barcodes.

I know iText can be used to create barcodes but it doesn't look like that it allows reading of barcodes as well. Is this correct? I’m not able to find examples of how to read a barcode image using iText.

Are there any other Java libraries/apis which would allow me to Create as well as Read Barcodes?

ZXing will read 1 and 2D barcodes.
Not used it (only used a barcode scanner on the serial port myself), but it appears to be the goto library at the moment.

You're correct that iText doesn't read barcodes. I noticed that the word "barcode" in your post is linked to a library that claims to be able to do both.
