Is there a simpler way to perform barcode printing in Oracle other than developing a print routine?

Well, Oracle is a database, so I'm assuming that you mean that you want to store barcode images. If so, you can...

use the Oracle BLOB datatype for this. Then, you simply route the predefined image to your printer with dbms_lob.

Another approach is to store the barcodes as numbers and API into a barcode print generator on the Web, like this one.
