Hi,
I need to print a bunch of name and address as labels in java ... can someone tell me how this can be done in Java.
If I was using MS tecnologies then i would use OLE or something with MS Word. .
I need to know how this can be done in java.. I don't mind using Open Office by sun .

Thanks,
sandsouza.

I suggest you start with the label printer and software that you have. In my case, I wrote records out to a directory that was being monitored by software by Zebra. The software had a designer tool where you set up how the labels looked and what fields were data driven. My Java app just had to write the data to a file in the expected format.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
