    Try out the ZXing Component in the Component store...

    Will Zxing will work with native device camera or scanner only??
    If i attach a barcodescanner(accessories) with my android device will this Zxing component will be helpful??

    ZXing works with the Camera. As for attaching 3rd party barcode scanners, I have no idea how to get it working. I guess you will have to ask the manufacturer for an SDK to use in your app to interface with it.

    There is no standard way to talk to all accessories you might attach to your device. Each accessory is different and would require an SDK provided by the manufacturer of the accessory.
