over the dev list.

> While researching on OFBIZ-10743, I have found that currently, we are using code39 to
generate barcodes but there are some limitations of code39 as it only able to encrypt letters
from A to Z, digits from 0 to 9 and an additional set of special characters – “. $ % +
– / *”.
>  
> To enhance the support for more characters in barcode I would suggest using code128 instead
of code39. 
>  
> Below are some of the advantages of code128:
>  # code128 supports all the 128 ASCII symbols.
>  # code128 standard is more concise and space-efficient. It also provides its users with
higher degrees of data security.  
> I will upload a patch soon for the improvement.
