What is the difference between the Manatee Works Barcode Scanner SDK and the Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK?
The Manatee Works Barcode Scanner SDK has been fully integrated into the Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK (cmbSDK). Therefore, we are shifting our focus to the cmbSDK.
The good news is that the cmbSDK is backward compatible with the MW SDK. The cmbSDK simply adds a higher-level API to the scanning methods that utilize the camera of a smartphone or tablet. Or, you can continue to use the lower-level methods you have become familiar with in the Manatee Works SDK. Your account, login, license(s), and key(s) remain the same. If you do decide to program to the higher-level API, you will have the added benefit of your app(s) supporting the Cognex MX Series mobile barcode readers, and MX Series mobile terminals, with a single code base.
