Hi Experts,
  I liked to know how to set a custome MediaSizeName, for taking the print of a bill.  Now I am using  MediaSizeName.ISO_A4, instead of that the paper I am going to use is of size 100mm x 150mm size.  

Now I am using :

DocFlavor flavor = DocFlavor.SERVICE_FORMATTED.PRINTABLE;
PrintRequestAttributeSet pras = new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();
pras.add(OrientationRequested.PORTRAIT);
pras.add(MediaSizeName.ISO_A4);
pras.add(new Copies(1));
pras.add(new JobName("My job", null));
PrintService printServices[] = PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(flavor, pras);

Regards
Suresh

Hi buddy:

you can use javax.print.attribute.standard.MediaPrintableArea class..
any of the two constructors.

MediaPrintableArea(float x, float y, float w, float h, int units)
          Constructs a MediaPrintableArea object from floating point values.

MediaPrintableArea(int x, int y, int w, int h, int units)
          Constructs a MediaPrintableArea object from integer values.

This way, you can use any size paper(iso A4 or any) but still specify the printable area on the paper.

Api below will help you further:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/javax/print/attribute/standard/MediaPrintableArea.html

So what you can do is ...set width and height as 100mm and 150mm in MediaPrintableArea class.
