From everything I seen, I am under the impression that you can print from a java application (I'm not worried about printing from applets, yet). I have seen several examples of sample code from people who say the code will print something out to my printer, but NONE of them work. They won't even compile! Whats the deal? Does anyone know how to print? If so, could you please share your knowledge with me? It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Java printing is a JDK 1.1 feature.  If the samples do not compile on your machine, you are almost certainly using a JDK 1.02 compiler.  Switch to a version of the compiler (and VM) which supports JDK 1.1 and you should find your sample code working just fine.

I THOUGHT I had downloaded 1.1 only to find out I got 1.0.2. Apparently those bastards lied to me! I now KNOW I have 1.1.4.

Thanks for the insight.
