I'm writing this in mere desperation :) I've been assigned to make a standalone barcode scanner (as a proof of concept) to an Android 1.6 phone.

For this i've discovered the ZXing library.

I've googled, read related topics here on StackOverflow used common sence and so forth. Nothing seemed to have helped, and i just can't punch a hole on this mentale blockade :/

I know it to be possible, to use the lib, and create your own standalone barcode scanner. I've read that using the "Barcode Scanner" provided by the Zxing folks, is by far the easiest solution (via Intent). Unfortunately this is not an option, and a standalone app is desired.

So to sum up my problem :

  1. How to integrate ZXing source lib into my Android Code project through Eclipse?
  2. When integrated ... how to make use of the lib, to "load" the scanning function?
  3. A step to step guide is almost prefered because i just started working in Eclipse.

I've tried to make my code project dependant of the Android folder from the ZXing source folder. When i do so, a handfull errors emerge, mostly concerning 'org.apache' (??)

I just can't figure it out ... so a few hints would be most helpfull.

In advance, thank you :)

UPDATE! - SOLVED + GUIDE

I've managed to figure it out :) And down below you can read step-by-step guide so it hopefully can help others with the same problem as I had ;)

  1. Install Apache Ant - (See this YouTube video for config help)
  2. Download the ZXing source from ZXing homepage and extract it
  3. With the use of Windows Commandline (Run->CMD) navigate to the root directory of the downloaded zxing src.
  4. In the commandline window - Type ant -f core/build.xml press enter and let Apache work it's magic [having issues?]
  5. Enter Eclipse -> new Android Project, based on the android folder in the directory you just extracted
  6. Right-click project folder -> Properties -> Java Build Path -> Library -> Add External JARs...
  7. Navigate to the newly extracted folder and open the core directory and select core.jar ... hit enter!

Now you just have to correct a few errors in the translations and the AndroidManifest.xml file :) Now you can happily compile, and you will now have a working standalone barcode scanner app, based on the ZXing source ;)

Happy coding guys - I hope it can help others :)

You can do this using the market:// prefix.

Java

final String appPackageName = getPackageName(); // getPackageName() from Context or Activity object
try {
    startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("market://details?id=" + appPackageName)));
} catch (android.content.ActivityNotFoundException anfe) {
    startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=" + appPackageName)));
}

Kotlin

try {
    startActivity(Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("market://details?id=$packageName")))
} catch (e: ActivityNotFoundException) {
    startActivity(Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=$packageName")))
}

We use a try/catch block here because an Exception will be thrown if the Play Store is not installed on the target device.

NOTE: any app can register as capable of handling the market://details?id=<appId> Uri, if you want to specifically target Google Play check the Ber?ák answer

Developer here. I think you're going to want to just integrate via Intent in the end. You get the improvements, bug fixes, and platform-specific workarounds for free. It's much less code too. But I understand you're asking for an alternative.

You probably want to strip down Barcode Scanner (whose source is in android/ in the project) and strip out everything you don't need. That means leave only about the com.google.zxing.client.android and com.google.zxing.client.android.camera packages. The core decoding is in DecodeThread, but the other code in these packages implements the little callback dance that does the continuous scanning and gets the usual scanning UI.

If you embed the code you need to follow the terms of the Apache License.

This means the device returned null from Camera.open() and it shouldn't ever do that. It's treated as a device bug. I am not sure how you would debug why it is doing this, but that's the cause.

The only time I have seen this happen consistently is on Android 2.2 devices that have a front camera, only. The API for accessing a front camera only appeared in Android 2.3, and the previous Camera.open() API method may only return a rear-facing camera. So these return null. And it is a device bug, really, since they really need to be running Android 2.3 to let apps use a front camera.
