i have to print the content of a JComponent in two printers connected over a peer-to-peer network simultaneously. please help me by sending some information about changing default (or setting) printer using java . thanks in advance
Hi friend ! If you use a PrinterJob, you can use the PrintDialog twice, I think. if(yourPrinterJob.printDialog()) yourPrinterJob.print(); if(yourPrinterJob.printDialog()) yourPrinterJob.print(); But I'm not sure

Thanks for your response here once more i will explain my problem briefly. i have a peer-to-peer network of three terminals. For each systems i am having printer connected to the default port.Here each terminals should be able to send information to the respective default printers and also to a common printer connected over the network(These two operations can be in two threads).Here i can set the printers by using the print dialog box what i can get , but it is not desirable for me and i should be able to set both printers in coding part(like setting page size and number of pages) and redirect deferent data to these printers at a time. Expecting help from all of You, Rajesh Adukkadukkath
