I have a form displaying a details screen .
I have 3 buttons as "print", "email" and "fax".
when i click those buttons the appropriate actions must take place.
for ex, if I click fax the details has to be sent through the fax.
if anybody knows the APIs to do this help me.
(esp. for fax and email).
(if you got any example code for this attach with your reply, it will be
more helpful).
with regards,

javax.mail would be your Mail API; as for faxing, the API depends on the Fax software that you are using; I don't know that Java has one. Depending on the software, it might be as simple as sending an E-mail to the fax server; hence, you would use the javax.mail API for that as well.
