No, they aren't.

You should probably check the XSLT SVG barcode generator, referenced
e.g. in the XSLT FAQ: http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect3/barcodes.html
Apache FOP will put this as scalable graphic into the PDF which may
or may not suit your needs.
Using barcode4j, either as Saxon or as FOP extension, may enable faster
processing than the XSLT, but installing it and all the dependencies is
more complicated.
