ps file lacking BoundingBox for using in Latex

Hello,
I have been working with plotting graphs in an applet using Graphics. Then I load the applet into Netscape Browser.
To print, I use PrinterJob() Class which, when printed to a file generates a ps file (in unix at least. Macintosh Netscape generates a pdf file but I am not working on Mac)
After saving the file as .ps, I tried to load it into Latex using epsfig. The problem that it reported is that it was missing the BoundingBox info which is the property of eps file.
I know how to solve this and convert ps to eps outside of java. But does anyone know how I can do this within java code? I've been trying to see if PrinterJob class has any parameters or options but I can't find anything.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
thanks
Ivan
