Subject Re: Image from String

I see nobody answered; assuming that with "codebar" you mean a barcode, 
you can create an image by creating a BufferedImage object, then getting 
a graphics2d device from it, writing on it with your barcode font. Don't 
forget to dispose the graphics2d device. You can then use it as in the 
AddImageToPDF example.

If you're doing a mass print (i.e. a PDF file with many pages), then it 
would be better to do it as text and include the font. See here:
