I'm writing this in mere desperation :) I've been assigned to make a standalone barcode scanner (as a proof of concept) to an Android 1.6 phone.
For this i've discovered the ZXing library.
I've googled, read related topics here on StackOverflow used common sence and so forth. Nothing seemed to have helped, and i just can't punch a hole on this mentale blockade :/
I know it to be possible, to use the lib, and create your own standalone barcode scanner. I've read that using the "Barcode Scanner" provided by the Zxing folks, is by far the easiest solution (via Intent). Unfortunately this is not an option, and a standalone app is desired.
So to sum up my problem :
I've managed to figure it out :) And down below you can read step-by-step guide so it hopefully can help others with the same problem as I had ;)
ant -f core/build.xmlpress enter and let Apache work it's magic [having issues?]
core.jar... hit enter!
Now you just have to correct a few errors in the translations and the AndroidManifest.xml file :) Now you can happily compile, and you will now have a working standalone barcode scanner app, based on the ZXing source ;)
Happy coding guys - I hope it can help others :)
