The new version of Aspose.BarCode for Java 17.04.0 has been released. The major development in this release is the enhanced functionality of GS1 coded barcode. GS1 code format can contain complex elements with digits and letters. Enhanced GS1 barcode functionality now can parse and validate these complex combinations. Improved QR coded barcode recognition functionality has also been incorporated in this release. Aspose.BarCode for Java now generates AI (Application Identifier) compliance GS1 coded barcode. Checksum calculation and validation for many AI specifications have been implemented. As an example, consider code text “(703)123”, this is an incorrect code text (ref: 703 AI, with letters – 324a, with more than 4 symbols). Aspose.BarCode will generates exception if user tries to generate the barcode with EncodeTypes as GS1Code128.Targets detection logic for QR coded barcode has been updated. Aspose.BarCode for Java can now detect QR coded barcode in combination with MaxQuality mode for better accuracy. This release also enhanced Recognition process of QR barcode in MaxBarCodes mode and Functionality of ExportToXml method has been improved. ExportToXml method now export dimension properties along with other properties of the newly define barcode into XML file. Below is the list of main improved features and bug fixes added in this release.
- Improve GS1 parsing and validation
- Improve targets detection for QR
- BarCodeBuilder allows to generate incorrect GS1 barcodes
- Unable to recognize the barcode using Aspose.BarCode
- Barcode generator accepts incorrect GS1 codetext
- BarCodeBuilder.ExportToXml method is not exporting dimensions of the barcode in the XML file
