How to upgrade the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK

How to upgrade from a test to an enterprise Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK edition

If you upgrade from the test to one of the enterprise or professional editions you need to download the SDK from the enterprise/professional account. If this is the same account that used to be a trial before, you need to redownload the SDK as its library has changed with the upgrade. Once downloaded replace the libraries in the project with the new ones. If you are using gradle-based builds, you only have to replace the ScanditBarcodeScanner.aar file. If you are using ant, or another build system, you will have to replace the .jar and .so libraries in all their respective folders. Finally check that the app key of your enterprise account matches the one in your app. If it doesn't match, replace it with the one in your account.

How to upgrade to a new version of the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK

If you are using gradle for building, you only have to replace the ScanditBarcodeScanner.aar file. For ant-based builds and other build-systems that don't support the .aar format, you will have to update all the files manually. Specifically you should replace the following files:

  • The .so libraries in their respective subfolders.
  • The .jar library
  • All the resources from the res/raw directory
