ColdFusion needs a way to create barcodes in both PDFs and as separate images.

Then CF should go one step further and offer a qualified reading solution with a scanner. Doesn't matter to me if Adobe does it in-house or partners with a scanner vendor to offer an end to end bar-code and scanning system.

Use Cases: Ticket generation, warehouse management, production systems

If there is a standard and the CF team can incorporate and maintain, I would agree. The use of third-party plugins runs the risk of neglect and the community's anger. While the team has been doing a better job of keeping them current of late, they are still having a difficult time keeping the 3rd party add-ons up to date (e.g. ZingChart, CKEditor, etc). My two cents.

Yeah, not really sure why updating those take so long. They should have like 100 test scenarios already built for each, so it should be as simple as replacing the library and running through each test again to vet nothing broke.

I have been seeing more and more barcodes on websites. When I get tickets at the theater near me, the checkout page creates a barcode. I print the page and that gets me into the movie.
