Today we will look into java QR code generator program. If you are tech and gadget savvy, then you must be aware of QR code. You will find it everywhere these days – in blogs, websites and even in some public places. This is very popular in mobile apps, where you scan the QR code using a QR Code scanner app and it will show you the text or redirect you to the web page if it’s URL.
Building a QR Code Generator with Core Image Filters
With this tutorial I’m returning back to the discussion about QR Codes after a long time and many tutorials in between since that first QR code-related tutorial, but this time with a completely different goal. My intension is not to talk once again about QR Code readers; after all, we have already such tutorials here (see the links above). This time my goal is to show you how to make a QR code generator. And trust me, as you’ll see, it’s as easy as making a QR code reader (even easier). But first, let me tell you a few things you should know about.
QR Code generator library
Step 1: Create a new project in Android Studio.
By using this.NET QR Code barcode generator add-on component, developers can create & draw scannable QR Codes on different image files (png, jpeg, gif and bmp) and insert them into common documents like TIFF, PDF, MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint using Visual VB.NET programming code. Following are some barcoding features offered by this.NET QR Code encoder DLL.
Create your custom QR Code with Logo
QR codes are machine readable printed representation of data for various industry uses. It has now become common in consumer advertising. A consumer with a Smartphone can install an app with a QR code scanner that can read and decode the URL information and redirect the phone’s browser to a company website.
What are QR Codes?
ATTENTIONContact QR Codes cannot be changed afterwards. And as any piece of additional information creates a bigger QR Code – more information equals more QR Code pixels -, you should use only the absolute minimum of information necessary. The bigger the QR Code is respectively the smaller the QR Code pixels are, the more difficult it is to scan your code.
The default generated QR code will be a Version 3 code with the Low error correction setting and a one-pixel border, creating a code that is 31×31 pixels. If the amount of text to be encoded cannot fit in a Version 3 code, the program will select the next version that will fit the amount of data to be encoded.
Simple Java QR Code Generator Example
Using QRGen you can easily create a QR code. It uses a builder pattern inspired API programming model. Which means you can simple chain every method an thus reducing the boiler plate code, you otherwise have to write. We start with the QRCode.from() static method where we pass in the URL of our website. Next, we configure the necessary configurations like: width, image type, etc. Then, we call the stream() method. This returns a ByteArrayOutputStream with the corresponding generated QR Code. Finally, we write the output stream to disk.
