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:
- code128 supports all the 128 ASCII symbols.
- 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.
