PrinterJob can't detect the new default printer

Under Windows XP and JDK 1.4, I use PrinterJob.getPrinterJob(); for getting the default printer.

When I changed the default printer from first printer to second printer in Windows's Setting, the PrinterJob.getPrinterJob(); still return the first printer as default printer.
And I don't want to show the Print Dialog.

I guess that this problem may be caused from the JVM will detect default printer only once when JVM started.

I obtain the same result if I use PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService(); It doesn�t work.

�Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I agree. Here's the link:
