import com.itextpdf.text.Rectangle;
import com.itextpdf.text.pdf.Barcode;
import com.itextpdf.text.pdf.BarcodeEAN;
import com.itextpdf.text.pdf.PdfWriter;

public class UPCATest {

  /**
   @param args
   @throws DocumentException 
   @throws FileNotFoundException 
   */
  public static void main(String[] argsthrows FileNotFoundException, DocumentException {
    Document document = new Document(new Rectangle(PageSize.A4));
    PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.getInstance(document, new FileOutputStream("upc-a.pdf"));
    document.open();

    //UPC-A Barcode
    document.add(new Paragraph("Barcode UPC-A"));
    BarcodeEAN codeEAN = new BarcodeEAN();
        codeEAN.setCodeType(Barcode.UPCA);
    codeEAN.setCode("482342364812");
                 
    //Add Barcode to PDF document
    document.add(codeEAN.createImageWithBarcode(writer.getDirectContent(), null, null));
    document.close();
  }

}
   

It gives the following output,
