   Design your GUI with any number of components in it. That is of no matter for us, when we intend to send the output to a printer. All you require is to include the following:

1. import java.awt.*;
2. Toolkit tk = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
3. PrintJob pj = tk.getPrintJob(container object,"title",null);
4. Graphics g = pj.getGraphics(container object);
5. container Object.printAll(g);
6. g.dispose();
