Does anyone know of a solution for using J2ME to print to a mobile printer. I know minimally of mobile printers. Can J2ME in the code print to a mobile printer attached to a phone.

If you're talking about MIDP on a mobile phone, there are no printing APIs in the spec. However, vendors who extend MIDP on their phones may offer such a thing.

Since most wireless printers are bluetooth based, the J2ME bluetooth API might offer some solutions. But I am not sure. The bluetooth OP is not supported by all bluetooth Java devices.
