In this blog post I will present the latest EG application feature : barcode scanning and searching the database using an identifier.
The latest Evergreen Android application version can be downloaded from here .
This version has only the barcode scan and decode functionalities. The supported barcode formats are: UPC-A, UPC-C, EAN-8 and EAN-13.
From the main application screen we chose the “SCAN” button that will launch the barcode scanning activity.
Next the scan activity will launch , the laser beam must be over the code bar and a message decoding the information will apear. In the future version of the app this will trigger an search based on the ISBN identifier.
This search functionality is based on the Zxing open source library.
