Silent Printing

I've done all the searches and had some success, but I need some help connecting the dots. I have a Book object that I create and it prints fine using a PrinterJob and the dialog pop up. I have another app that uses a DocPrintJob that I created from the printService obj and I don't need to pop up the dialog in order for it to print.

My problem is I need to print the Book object without the printDialog popup. When I leave out the printJob.printDialog() and then call printJob.print(), nothing happens. So how can I get a Book to print without the dialog?
I agree. Here's the link:
