Java Print Service

Java Print Service

The Java Print Service API allows printing on all Java platforms including those requiring a small footprint, such as a Java ME profile, but also supports the java.awt.print.PrinterJob API. The Java Print Service API includes an extensible print attribute set based on the standard attributes specified in the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) 1.1 from the IETF. With the attributes, client and server applications can discover and select printers that have the capabilities specified by the attributes. In addition to the included StreamPrintService, which allows applications to transcode data to different formats, third parties can dynamically install their own print services through the Service Provider Interface.

API Specification

The Java Print Service API consists of these four packages:

Provides the principal classes and interfaces for the Java Print Service API.

Provides classes and interfaces that describe the types of Java Print Service attributes and how they can be collected into attribute sets.

Contains classes defining specific printing attributes.

Contains event classes and listener interfaces for monitoring print services and the progress of a specific print job.

Tutorials and Programmer's Guides

The Java Print Service User Guide describes the Java Print Service in more detail and demonstrates how to use the Java Print Service API to:

  • Discover and select print services based on their capabilities
  • Specify the format of print data
  • Submit print jobs to services that support the document type to be printed.
