    Default Java Printing

    I am looking for a good tutorial with examples for printing using Java. The best article I have found on Line is "Printing in Java" by JavaWorld. However, the links to download the example programs seem to be long defunct. Any suggestions?

    Have you read the tutorials from the 'source' (aka Oracle)?

    Yes, I have read the tutorials - but they are very shy on examples. They also tend to brush over details like setting the page orientation and changing fonts. Also page headers and footers seem to be minimally covered.

    It might be feasible to get a good Java Book - there are lots available though, so
    finding the exact one for the problem could be an uphill task. Check out "effective Java"
    or "Java How to Program" - those are well known books - also, Bruce Eckel has released
    his third Java electronic booklet for free usage. He is quite renowned for producing
    excellent text for subjects of C, C++ and Java - probably one of the best sources.

    Wink Re: Java Printing

    I just had this issue also, make a PrinterJob object and call the print() method. You then have to have your own print method, public int print(Graphics g, PageFormat pf, int page).
    The page variable is misleading because this method is called with the same page number multiple times.

    As far as fonts, look up the Graphics class and the Graphics2D class,
