Hello

We have an application (GUI) that uses a printer on COM port.

Now they bought a new printer (same model) and it will be connected to USB, I looked on internet and only found an API to be used on Linux but we use windows on clients.

There are some API to be solve our problem ?


thanks

Welcome to JavaRanch.

The http://faq.javaranch.com/java/JavaIoFaq has a couple of links regarding Java and USB; maybe they're helpful to you.

Do you install a printer driver on the client or are you actually interacting with the COM port? If you have a printer driver, I don't think anything will change.

First of all thanks both for the Welcome message and the Reply.

About my problem I read both sites and I didn't get anything stable to be used.

Actually my program does a directly I/O on COM port and we didn't connected the printer (Zebra printer) on Client so I don't know if this printer is recognized by Windows (:S... sorry about that but I don't have this printer here).

There are a way to make a I/O using a windows printer ? If I got this printer recognized on windows.

Thanks Guys
