Java Barcode offers the most affordable Java barcode generator for barcode Java professionals.

Java UPC-E Introduction

UPC-E is also known as Universal Product Code version E, UPC-E Supplement 5/Five-digit Add-On, UPC-E Supplement 2/Two-digit Add-On, UPC-E+5, UPC-E+2, UPC-E0, E0, UPC-E1, E1, GTIN-12 with lead "0", GS1-12, UCC-12

UPC-E is a variation of UPC-A which allows for a more compact barcode by eliminating "extra" zeros.
Since the resulting UPC-E barcode is about half the size as an UPC-A barcode, UPC-E is generally used on products with very small packaging where a full UPC-A barcode couldn't reasonably fit.
A UPC-E barcode represents 6 digits with an implied number system 0.
