QRCode generator on JavaFX, using ZXing

This example show how to generate QR Code using ZXing, an open-source, multi-format 1D/2D barcode image processing library implemented in Java, with ports to other languages.

Before enter the code, you have to download, create and add the ZXing jars in Netbeans IDE.

package javafx_qrcodewriter;

import com.google.zxing.BarcodeFormat;
import com.google.zxing.WriterException;
import com.google.zxing.common.BitMatrix;
import com.google.zxing.qrcode.QRCodeWriter;
import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Graphics2D;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;
import javafx.application.Application;
import javafx.embed.swing.SwingFXUtils;
import javafx.scene.Scene;
import javafx.scene.image.ImageView;
import javafx.scene.layout.StackPane;
import javafx.stage.Stage;

public class JavaFX_QRCodeWriter extends Application {
    public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
        QRCodeWriter qrCodeWriter = new QRCodeWriter();
        String myWeb = "http://java-buddy.blogspot.com/";
        int width = 300;
        int height = 300;
        String fileType = "png";
        BufferedImage bufferedImage = null;
        try {
            BitMatrix byteMatrix = qrCodeWriter.encode(myWeb, BarcodeFormat.QR_CODE, width, height);
            bufferedImage = new BufferedImage(width, height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);
            Graphics2D graphics = (Graphics2D) bufferedImage.getGraphics();
            graphics.fillRect(0, 0, width, height);
            for (int i = 0; i < height; i++) {
                for (int j = 0; j < width; j++) {
                    if (byteMatrix.get(i, j)) {
                        graphics.fillRect(i, j, 1, 1);
        } catch (WriterException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(JavaFX_QRCodeWriter.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        ImageView qrView = new ImageView();
        qrView.setImage(SwingFXUtils.toFXImage(bufferedImage, null));
        StackPane root = new StackPane();
        Scene scene = new Scene(root, 350, 350);
        primaryStage.setTitle("Hello World!");

    public static void main(String[] args) {
