JAB Code

Just Another Bar Code

JAB Code is a 2D color bar code, which can encode more data than traditional black/white codes.


JAB Code is a color two-dimensional matrix symbology whose basic symbols are made of colorful square modules arranged in either square or rectangle grids. JAB Code has two types of basic symbols, named as primary symbol and secondary symbol. A JAB Code contains one primary symbol and optionally multiple secondary symbols. Primary symbols contain four finder patterns located at the corners of the symbol, while secondary symbols contain no finder pattern. A secondary symbol can be docked to a primary symbol or another docked secondary symbol in either horizontal or vertical direction. JAB Code can encode from small to large amount of data correlated to user-specified percentages of error correction.
