Great work Bob,

We are gradually getting there.

It looks like IPP is becoming the de facto printing standard out in the
market although it takes time.

> Java 1.4 available from Sun in March 2002 has a Print Service API based on
> IPP/1.1. See:
> http://java.about.com/library/weekly/aa052002a.htm
> The [print-spool] free standards WG should take a look at this for
> consideration of the Print API (PAPI).
> Here is some more information on the Java 1.4 Print Service API:
> Print Service API
> The new Print Service API enables Java applications to:
> *	discover and select print services based on their capabilities;
> *	specify the format of print data;
> *	submit print jobs to services that support the document type to be
> printed.

> Here is the initial paragraph from the above URL:
> The JavaTM Print Service is a new Java Print API that allows
> printing on all
> Java platforms, including platforms requiring a small footprint, such as a
> J2ME profile, but still supports the current Java 2 Print API. Thie Java
> Print Service API includes an extensible print attribute set based on the
> standard attributes specified in the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) 1.1
> from the IETF. With the attributes, client and server applications can
> discover and select printers that have the capabilities specified by the
> attributes. In addition to the included StreamPrintService, which allows
> applications to transcode data to different formats, a third party can
> dynamically install their own print services through the Service Provider
> Interface
> Congratulations to Bob Herriot for working with the Java team to come up
> with this specification that builds on IPP and gets IPP semantics into yet
> another standard.
