      Description

      This has been discussed on mailing thread over the dev list.
       
      While researching on OFBIZ-10743, I have found that currently, we are using code39 to generate barcodes but there are some limitations of code39 as it only able to encrypt letters from A to Z, digits from 0 to 9 and an additional set of special characters – “. $ % + – / *”.
       
      To enhance the support for more characters in barcode I would suggest using code128 instead of code39. 
       
      Below are some of the advantages of code128:

      1. code128 supports all the 128 ASCII symbols.
      2. code128 standard is more concise and space-efficient. It also provides its users with higher degrees of data security.  

      I will upload a patch soon for the improvement.
