## FAQ

Please search previous issues for an answer before opening a pull request. A few common ones
are listed here.

### I get a compilation error.

While you can check the build status at [Travis](https://travis-ci.org/zxing/zxing) to confirm,
the project correctly builds and passes tests at all times.
90% of the time it's due to using an old version of Java. Version 3.4+ require Java 8.
Use earlier versions with Java 7 and earlier.

### This barcode doesn't decode.

Not all images will decode. All else equal, more is better, but this is not accepted as a bug
report. A pull request that makes changes to make the barcode decode without decreasing the net
number of barcodes recognized in the unit tests may be considered.

## Licensing

Contributions via GitHub pull requests are gladly accepted from their original author.
