How do i mask the url that is been printed in the print out sheet .
My scernario is that when i take a print out the url of that machine is being printed . Instead of that i need my message to be dispalyed at that position .
How can i do this with java coding ?
Is there any syntax for that ?

It depends on the web browser. Web browser prints the URL of the page, as it appears on the address bar. If you don't like your current url, you can purchase a domain name for your web application site (after the web site is hosted on a server), so it would be printed on that location. In this case, there are nothing to do with Java.
So this is a Java desktop application that prints something? If so, shouldn't the printing code be under your control? But if it's a desktop app, where do URLs fit in - does it have an embedded browsing component?
1. Save yourself the headache and use a Third Party Reporting tool
2. PDFs !!! User can print it in whtever manner he wants to or keep the report as a file backup [no need to cut down trees for paper] !!
I would like to point out:
On one hand you say its a Desktop application, one the other you are referring to JSP. Either your terminologies are mixed up
or, as Ulf Dittmer pointed out:
Your application could be pc based but uses the browser or some component to show the result
or your application is web based (Not a Desktop application).
If you are indeed using a web based alternative, You have no control over the browser's print mechanism [Other than showing print dialog]
You can show the user instructions on how to print the result in his browser, etc.
