I want to get the printer details of connected printers with detailed information such as printer name, whether printer is ON/OFF, the cartridge level, Manufacture information and so on. When i Google i got some information like only basic details of printer like name and manufacturer details can be retrieved. My question is can i get other information such as cartridge level, ON/OFF status using javaapplet. Is it possible to get such information using java program.

The Java class libaries have no such functionality to my knowledge. Your best cross-platform bet is probably SNMP (for which there are Java client libraries available like snmp4j), but obviously that depends on the printer to make that kind iof information available via SNMP - not a given.
