    Default Program for printing it on a laser

    Do I use Javax.swing? I am trying to develop a program where by my computer can connect to a laser printer. Then transfer a picture file .jpg on to a plastic or stensil sheet. From there on iron the laser onto a printing press on to the t shirt. White. I'm just not sure if you can use Javax.swing and the standard Java 8 or Java 9 edition.

    please if you could be kind enough to jump right in. Thanks for your input.

    Java does not "connect" to a printer. That is done by the OS. The Java API has a PrinterJob class for accessing the printer and printing images or text. It has been around since Java 1.4. So you may use any version of Java since then.
