Support for Old Bar codes generated using java 2.2 version


We are using aspose jar version 2.2 licensed to generate 2D BarCode PDF417 symbology.

Now we are planning to purchase jar 2.5.1 version. Need few clarifications:

1) Do we have any problems in reading the bar code generated using this 2.5.1 version or will it support the existing barcode in the same way ? The problem is we may have to go for Certification with the third party vendor if there is any change which will take time.

2) Is the license loading different for 2.2 and 2.5.1 ? As of now, we have the information in a .lic file and reading that file in the java file while generating the bar code.

Hi Gopi.

Thank you for considering Aspose.

If you are upgrading your license then why not upgrade for latest version of Aspose.BarCode for Java v4.4.0. This release includes all the features, bug fixes and supported symmbologies that are the part of Aspose.BarCode for .NET v4.4.0.

1) The latest version of Aspose.BarCode for Java v4.4.0 will be able to read the barcodes that were generated with any previous version. You can also test the new version in licensed mode by acquiring a 30 day temporary license.
2) Setting the license is as simple as given below,

com.aspose.barcode.License license = new com.aspose.barcode.License();

In case you have more questions, please feel free to write back.
