Hello,

I've seen (unfortunately outdated) examples of extending BIRT by using
extensionpoints. Since I'm in need of printing barcodes my first idea
(after finding out that there seems to be no native support for barcodes)
was to extend BIRT by writing an plugin implementing barcode4j
(http://barcode4j.sourceforge.net/). My second idea was that such a common
task as to print barcodes is most likely already solved in a way I could
gain use of.
But I could not yet find a solution.

Is there a way of using barcodes in BIRT (for PDF output) without using a
barcode font?

And if not, are there more updated articles about how to write report
items than the one I found ("Developing an Eclipse BIRT Report Item
Extension" at http://java.sys-con.com/read/286915.htm). There seem to be
some significant API changes in BIRT back to where the article was written.

Thank,
Jan

By the way, lots of Java barcode generators for Eclipse BIRT have already been in the market. So you should spend more time exploring how to integrate this technology into some bigger project.
