I found CUPS4J a few days ago. It's an open source library for ipp print. And I want to use it in my application.
Its site only show a C/S version example. And I want to use without the server.
Did anyone try this? If so,can you show me an example.

By the way,are there other libraries that provide ipp print API except javax.print and cups4j?

Little late to the party but I found your post looking for a sample, I have a simple USB printer that i pass raw ESC/P (Epson printer language files) to on a linux machine.
Its about as simple as it gets in terms of printing. javax.print was the other option, it seems to try to do too much and mess up my esc/p files.

So, here's a simple example to print a file via CUPS through java.

CupsClient cc = new CupsClient();
CupsPrinter cp = cc.getDefaultPrinter();
InputStream is = new FileInputStream("/home/bart/real.escp");
org.cups4j.PrintJob pj = new PrintJob.Builder(is).build();
cp.print(pj);
