I have an application which displays several screens of data, with headers, colors, icons, etc. I would like to print the data into several pages with a headers, page numbers, etc (NOT exactly as it is presented in the screen, simpler than that but with some format). Can anyone can suggest me from where to start?

You'll have to draw the data directly to the graphics context of the screen or the printer....

Here's a link to a free PDF on "Printing" in java -- and it includes a tutorial on printing JTables over multiple pages (with repeating headers on each page).

It's from the book "Swing"  by Manning Press.  I've got this book and I like it a lot...  

Here's the main web site for the book:

If this doesn't get you started, you'll have to post more information on what you want to accomplish...

tutty,

Take a look at rreport.  Do a google search for it.  I looked at it about a year ago.  It is lightweight, java(portable), and has a report designer.  I believe you can get the source code as well.  It is commercial, but is priced VERY reasonably...around $25-$45.

There is another tool to generate reports,
actuate e-reporting tool, which takes in any data source
, which has a designer, previewer, and a document printer
which prints it in about 7 formats.
The data sources could be a simple dB or a nested java
objects. Is'nt that cool...
