The current focus of IBM's JAVA NPM is printer status, configuration and
events. If there is enough interest, to clarify the PWG understanding of
this product, I will be happy to bring a demo of JAVA NPM with me to San
Diego. I would need the cooperation of the PWG Chair in finding a place
on the agenda. This could even be done "after hours", directly following
whatever topic is in session on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
