WebSphere IBM 3.5 only works with IBM JDK1.2. Sun 1.4, no way. Even Sun 1.2 will not work with WebSphere 3.5. I am not familiar with Sun's print. Is it in rt.jar of JDK1.4? Try to seperate print from Sun JDK1.4. Prepare a jar file for print. Put it in class path of WebSphere 3.5. I know sometimes this is not possible. You EJB has some programming restrictions, such as listening on a socket, or using classes from io packages. If using print is against the above restriction, it will not work.
