import net.sourceforge.barbecue.Barcode;
import net.sourceforge.barbecue.BarcodeFactory;
import net.sourceforge.barbecue.BarcodeImageHandler;

public class BarCode2StreamTest {

  public static void main (String [] argsthrows Exception {

    //Get 128B Barcode instance from the Factory
    Barcode barcode = BarcodeFactory.createCode128B("be the coder");

    //Ouput stream to File/Socket/servlet response stream
    OutputStream outStream = new FileOutputStream("teststream.png");
    //Write the bar code to OutputStream
    BarcodeImageHandler.writePNG(barcode, outStream);
