Question Barcode Reader Like on BlackBerry Messenger

Please Login to Remove!


I am trying to develop a QR Code reader for the BlackBerry Curve 8900 v4.6.1.101

I have tried ZXing libraries (1.4 & 1.6) but they do not seem to compile for this version of the OS I need it for :(

I know that v6 has it built into the OS but I really need to push this out to older OS's

What I would really like to do is use the same functionailty as in BlackBerry Messenger 5+. For those of you that do not know, you click on the menu option of "Scan a Group Barcode" and it then takes you to the video camera via a help screen. The camera then shows you in a kind of live view (on my model it changes the focus automatically). Once it can read a valid barcode it pops up a dialog with the information and asks if you would like to navigate there.

I love this functionality and was wondering if anyone knows how I could accomplish this? Example code would be a great help in this area.

Thanks in advance.
