i tried with the applet and all my questions were answered while i was coding it.
It was possible to make a printing job with the applet so i could make the silent printing. I used the java.awt.print package but, of course, the applet was using external devices, so it needs to be signed.
The other problem was getting the PDF file. I could not get the pdf from JSF. So, i made a Servlet that responses the pdf file to the applet.
it was actually kind of easy to make. If you have this problem i recomend you to make an Java Applet
