Is there a way to make Java print the contents of a JFrame to the default printer, which class hanles that if their is?

Also, I know of the frame.dispose() method but that doesn't seem to close a JFrame, I have a multiple JFrame application with a back button option, I would like to find the best way to close the current frame, I am usinge JFrame.dispose?
Thanks,
Jesse

Have a look at The Java Tutorial: Printing.
Also, if you look at the Java API for Window, you'll see that dispose() doesn't do what you think it does. You first want to call setVisible()
