Hi,

      I need to find all available network lan printers which support given document flavor using java API.
     
      When i run the following code standalone, i am able to find the printers.
       PrintService[] mPrintServices = PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(aDocFlavor, aPrintRequestAttributeSet);
 
      But the same code when it is getting executed in weblogic environment by a message driven been it is not able to find all network lan printers except local printer.

       It is on the same windows machine.

       Do i need to configure anything in weblogic to make the printers visible to weblogic or should i have to disable any ports?

     ***This is urgent looking for suggestions***

Thanks

Hi madhurikg

How do you run the code in first place? Is it via a stand alone java application? Do you get a popup with the available printers? Bare in mind that EJBs are executred on the server and not on the client and therefore you might be getting all printers but you are not able to see them.

Cheers

I run the code by stand alone java application. I do not get any pop up windows. I just print all available printservices.
The following is the code.

PrintService[] mPrintServices = PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(aDocFlavor, aPrintRequestAttributeSet);
for (int i = 0; i < oPrintServices.length; i++) {
      lw.log("printservicename:::"+oPrintServices[i].getName());
}

If the same code is executed by the Message driven Bean(EJB) in weblogic it is not finding any lan printers

Hi

Weblogic can retive printer information which are available to that applicaiton server not the network printers.  You can do this with ejb alternatively like.,

map the network printers which are available with some names and try to retrive those form EJB with alias.

Hope this will help:)
