Got it worked..
thanks once again!!!
for those who might need the code.
import javax.print.*;
import javax.print.attribute.*;
import java.io.*;
public class Printing {
public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {
//String filename = args[0];
PrintRequestAttributeSet pras =
new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();
DocFlavor flavor = DocFlavor.INPUT_STREAM.PNG;
PrintService printService[] =
PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(flavor, pras);
for (int i=0;i<printService.length;i++)
{
System.out.println (printService[i].toString());
}
/*PrintService defaultService =
PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService();
PrintService service = ServiceUI.printDialog(null, 200, 200,
printService, defaultService, flavor, pras);
if (service != null) {
DocPrintJob job = service.createPrintJob();
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(filename);
DocAttributeSet das = new HashDocAttributeSet();
Doc doc = new SimpleDoc(fis, flavor, das);
job.print(doc, pras);
Thread.sleep(10000);
}
*/
System.exit(0);
}
}
