How to Generate UPC-A in BIRT Report
Below is an example to print UPC-A barcodes in Eclipse BIRT Report. For details, view here: BIRT Barcode Generator - Developer Guide
  1. Copy com.onbarcode.barcode.birt_2.2.1.jar to your Eclipse plugins directory "\eclipse\plugins\"
  2. Create a new empty report in your BIRT Report barcoding project
  3. Open View "Palette", and add report item "Barcode" to your created BIRT report
