    Default Generate Barcode wih XZing

    I wan't to generate a Barcode which is type of GS1 databar expanded. I'm searched in google and didn't found realy working results. I discover that ZXing gives the possibility to generate different barcodes. I wrote an small code and i can generate barcode for ean128.

    package de.olgun.barcodee128;
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.FileOutputStream;
    import com.google.zxing.BarcodeFormat;
    import com.google.zxing.WriterException;
    import com.google.zxing.client.j2se.MatrixToImageWriter;
    import com.google.zxing.common.BitMatrix;
    import com.google.zxing.oned.Code128Writer;
    import com.google.zxing.oned.Code39Writer;
    import com.google.zxing.oned.OneDimensionalCodeWriter;
    import com.google.zxing.oned.rss.expanded.decoders.AbstractExpandedDecoder;
    public class barcode128 {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
               int width = 440; 
               int height = 48;
               BitMatrix bitMatrix;
            try {
                bitMatrix = new Code128Writer().encode("10400550006232515201231",BarcodeFormat.RSS_EXPANDED,width,height,null);
            	MatrixToImageWriter.writeToStream(bitMatrix, "png", new FileOutputStream(new File("C:\\Users\\fecub\\Desktop\\zxing_barcode.png")));
            } catch (WriterException e) {
                // TODO Auto-generated catch block
            } catch (Exception e) {
                // TODO Auto-generated catch block

    But my question is how to modify this code that gives me to possibility to create GS1 databar expanded barcodes.

    Why not try another EAN 128 barcode generator which supports this functionality?
