Howdy, this is my first time working with the Print API's in Java (javax.print). I haven't really found much information on it. Can I find a specific printer and then monitor it's job queque to see what it is printing? If so can someone give me a clue as how to get started? I'm printing labels and while we have 10 printers in the network, only one printer can print these labels. Thanks.

For the most part the printing API just hooks into your operating systems handling of printing. If you use a PrinterJob the OS's standard printer dialog will pop-up and let you select the printer that you want to use.
