hi,

If your jsp page contain the data, just export to excel using jxl.write,
Class WritableWorkbook, then print.

What is your jsp contain? How you want to print?

My jsp displays data(from database) in a tabular format. In my jsp page, I do have some headings and other stuff, but i only want the data in tabular format to be printed.

How about the PrinterJob class?

using jxl.write, just export to excel then print.

Already you are having jsp display data in the List isn't, use that data, Export to excel.

The example code something like this.


response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel;charset=UTF-8");
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=dfs.xls");
WritableWorkbook w = Workbook.createWorkbook(response.getOutputStream());

WritableSheet s = w.createSheet("sheet name", 0);

WritableFont wfTitle = new WritableFont(
WritableFont.ARIAL, 14);
Label l1;

WritableCellFormat cfTitle = new WritableCellFormat(wfTitle);
l1= new Label(0,0,"abc",cfTitle);
s.addCell(l1);
