Once it's been read then i want to save it sql table.

Please Help.

"Do i need any extra hardware to read it."

You need what is called a "barcode scanner"
How it interfaces to your computer depends on which one you get, which in turn depends on what you want to do with it.

Really good ones are SICK[^] - but you may be able to find a more cost-effective solution.

What are you trying to achieve?

Hello sir, just dropping by(if I can help ^_^)
Why not use Java language, VB, C# rather than Me and my groupmates created that when we where in 2nd year college using vb(for system only(stand alone)) since you can connect the hardware via parallel port,serial etc. Read a lot of tutorial in google and im sure i post our project somewhere in the net ^_^
Here is a sample by the way ^_^

^_^ Hope can help in a little way ^_^

Because he wants it in a website ? Of course, java is the way to go for the component he'll host on the web, I agree.
