import com.itextpdf.text.pdf.Barcode39;
import com.itextpdf.text.pdf.PdfWriter;

public class BarCodeColorsTest {

   @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("barcode39colors.pdf"));;

    //Barcode 39
    document.add(new Paragraph("Barcode 39 with Colors"));
    Barcode39 code39 = new Barcode39();
    BaseColor barColor = BaseColor.BLUE;
    BaseColor txtColor = BaseColor.ORANGE;
    //Add Barcode to PDF document
            writer.getDirectContent(), barColor, txtColor));


It gives the following output,
