Printing to a specific printer tray (HP 806dn printer)

In my website, I have to print 3 documents for each order.

1. Receipt - 8 1/2 x 11 to tray 2
2. Grid sheet - 11 x 17 to tray 3 (two sided document)
3. Exams - 11 x 17 to tray 3 (one sided document(s))

These need to print in that order because I have as many as 100 orders per day and they are being printed by a fulfillment company outside of our office.

How can I tell the printer what tray to print to using Coldfusion?

We had it set up as 3 separate printers on that computer but sometimes the sequence of the jobs gets confused.

AFAIK, this isn't supported with pure ColdFusion, ie cfprint.  It might be possible with java. If that's an option, you may want to open a new thread and ask in the java zone.

Can't help much but i can give you a lead: as the previous commenter says, call out to Java. Google on the use of http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/javax/print/attribute/PrintJobAttributeSet.html
