DataWedge API for Android

DataWedge v1.3.8 for Android saw the introduction of an intent based API that allows a native Android application to control DataWedge in the following ways.


  • start, stop or toggle the barcode soft scan trigger
  • enable/disable the barcode scanner plugin
  • get a list of available barcode scanners
  • set/reset the default profile
  • switch the current profile


To find out more about this take a look at the DataWedge API documentation. You can also find this link in the DataWedge Space in the DataWedge Resources box on the left.


Note: The DataWedge API documentation is best viewed in a recent version of a modern browser.


Hi Roman,

using Chrome on Mac I get a 404 error trying to load the DW API documentation.


Hi Pietro,

There was a problem with the link; should be fixed now.
