Deprecation warning

Please note that this is outdated documentation for an older release of the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK.

We are deprecating the 5.x API on all platforms (except Linux). Release 5.19 in April 2021 will be our final. Applications running 5.x will continue to work, and we will continue to release critical bug fixes and security patches only, for one year. We encourage you to migrate to 6.x and take advantage of our latest / advanced features and improved performance.

You'll find the updated documentation at: Data Capture SDK Documentation for Android

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 enterprise edition you only need to replace the license key to enterprise edition. Please contact us for more details.

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
