To print to a printer, you can open a file which name is the printer device. For example, suppose that your local
     laser printer device is "lpt1", you can do it like this:

     private void print(String report)
         {  
           if (report != "") {
         
           PrintWriter out = null;
            try {
              out = new PrintWriter(new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter("lpt1")));
            } catch ( IOException e) {};
         
          System.out.println("Report to be printed is : " + report);
           out.print(report);
           out.flush();
           out.close();
           }

     This code works well. If your printer device is LAN printer, you type command " net use lpt1 [the printer].
