Printing in Java

Posted by Leon on January 07, 2001 at 10:25 PM

I happen to be building a web application using Java and in that
application, I allow the user to print either by clicking on a
link or on a button.

I realised that within the printerJob class that there are the
methods getCopies(), setCopies(int a), printDialog() etc.

I opened up the printerJob class (which is found in the src.jar)
and discovered that the methods within the class is empty.

However, when I did a test application, the printDialog() method
is able to call up a print common dialog box(I am using Windows
as my OS).The getCopies() and setCopies(int a) method however did
not work at all.

I know that it is impossible for the common dialog box to open
up by itself without any codings so I would like to request for
your help in finding the codes for the printerJob class.

Thanks for your time.
