Hi

Our SWING based application is 6 years old and we have been using a third party print API that was available at that time.

As it is a very old API, all the print features are not available and it provides just a minimal print features. Now we are thinking of migrating to a best available print API.

What is the best third party print API available with robust print capabilities? OUR COMPANY IS READY TO SPEND SOME BUCKS TO BUY ANY ROBUST THIRD PARTY PRINT API.

Thanks
Reddy

Why does it need to be third party? What's missing from the Java print API that you can't simply use it?

Following are the reasons for looking for a third party API
1. Our Applet is still based on JDK1.2. We have plans to migrate to JDK1.4.
2. We wanted to enhance the existing print functionality as soon as possible.
