Printing AZTEC bidimensional barcode on Iseries

We produce packaging for the biggest Worldwide online retailer.
Customer wants on our pallets a label that fits to their logistic system.
The label has an AZTEC bidimensional barcode in it. IS Series supports QRCODE but not AZTEC

Use Case:

We need to print AZTEC code using Host Print Transform functions, when we print phisically at our plants,

We also need to create PDFs with barcode in it.

Please notice that at present we didn't find the way to even obtain the normal QRCODE in a PDF

    .I have made a formal request to the AFP Consortium to add the AZTEC bar code as one of the bar code symbologies supported by AFP.

    IBM recognizes this as a beneficial enhancement. IBM will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it. IBM will use votes and comments from others in the community to help prioritize this request.
