Add Printing Settings in Java Code


I'm new to java, I have a jTextArea that I want to send it's content to print.
I was able to achieve that using
Boolean complete=jValueText.print();
            if (complete){
                JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Done Printing...");
                JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Printing...");

Open in new window

This approach will show a printer dialog and the user can set the settings, like paper orientation etc. But I'll like to just set the settings in the java code, so when the user clicks the print button, it will just print the text using the settings I configured in the java code.
The settings I want to configure are;
Page size
Printer to use
Scale size of the page
I'm using Netbeans 8.2, MacBook Pro Sierra
