Hi,

Below, Norm Jacobs (Sun, editor of FSG Open Printing PAPI/1.0)
proposes final additions for PAPI/1.0:  Document object and
selected IPP Admin operations.

Please send comments to 'pwg at pwg.org' and I'll forward them.

Cheers,

Subject: [printing-spool] PAPI v1.0 final functionality



I am proposing that we add content to cover the following areas prior to
finalizing v1.0 of the spec.

	Creation of a Document object

	Administrative operations
		Add/Remove destination (printer/queue)
			(modify is already in the spec. but may need a
			 more complete description.)
		Enable/Disable destination (printer/queue)
			Enable/Disable job creation on a
			particular destination.
		Promote Job
			make a job the next one to process.

If there is anything else that others would like to add, please bring
it up now.  I would like to finalize the content of PAPI v1.0 in the
next few weeks so that there is some small chance that it can be
completed this fall.

	-Norm

More detail on document object interfaces will follow next week (I
hope), but I propose that the additions for new administrative
operations be as follows.

papi_status_t papiPrinterAdd(papi_service_t handle, char *printer_name,
		papi_attribute_t **attributes, papi_printer_t *printer);
INPUTS
	handle	- Handle to the print service on which to create the
		  printer object.
	name	- Name or URI of the printer to be created
	attrs	- Attributes to associate with the printer object
		  being created.
OUTPUTS
	printer	- The printer object created on the print service.
RETURNS
	If successful, a value of PAPI_OK is returned.  Otherwise an
	appropriate failure value is returned.
EXAMPLE
	papi_status_t status;
	papi_service_t svc = NULL;
	papi_attribute_t **attrs = NULL;
	papi_printer_t printer = NULL;
	...
	papiAttributeListAddString(&attrs, PAPI_EXCL,
			"device-uri", "socket://printer:9100");
	papiAttributeListAddString(&attrs, PAPI_ATTR_APPEND,
			"document-format-supported", "application/ps");
	papiAttributeListAddString(&attrs, PAPI_ATTR_APPEND,
			"document-format-supported", "text/plain");
	papiAttributeListAddInteger(&attrs, PAPI_EXCL,
			"copies-default", 3);
	...
	status = papiPrinterAdd(svc, "ipp://server/printers/triplicate",
			attrs, &result);
	papiAttributeListFree(attrs);

	if (status != PAPI_OK) {
		/* report a failure */
	}

	if (result != NULL) {
		/* dump the printer info */

		papiPrinterFree(result);
	}
	...
	papiServiceDestroy(svc);

papi_status_t papiPrinterRemove(papi_service_t handle, char
*printer_name);
INPUTS
	handle	- Handle to the print service from which to remove the
		  printer object.
	name	- Name or URI of the printer to be removed.
RETURNS
	If successful, a value of PAPI_OK is returned.  Otherwise an
	appropriate failure value is returned.
EXAMPLE
	papi_status_t status;
	papi_service_t svc = NULL;
	...
	status = papiPrinterRemove(svc, "ipp://server/printers/triplicate");
	if (status != PAPI_OK) {
		/* report a failure */
	}
	...
	papiServiceDestroy(svc);

papi_status_t papiPrinterEnable(papi_service_t handle, char
*printer_name);
INPUTS
	handle	- Handle to the print service on which to enable job
		  creation for the printer object.
	name	- Name or URI of the printer to be enabled
RETURNS
	If successful, a value of PAPI_OK is returned.  Otherwise an
	appropriate failure value is returned.
EXAMPLE
	papi_status_t status;
	papi_service_t svc = NULL;
	...
	status = papiPrinterEnable(svc, "ipp://server/printers/triplicate");
	if (status != PAPI_OK) {
		/* report a failure */
	}
	Dis.
	papiServiceDestroy(svc);

papi_status_t papiPrinterDisable(papi_service_t handle, char
*printer_name,
		char *message);
INPUTS
	handle	- Handle to the print service on which to disable job
		  creation for the printer object.
	name	- Name or URI of the printer to be disabled
	message	- an optional reason for disabling the print queue. 
RETURNS
	If successful, a value of PAPI_OK is returned.  Otherwise an
	appropriate failure value is returned.
EXAMPLE
	papi_status_t status;
	papi_service_t svc = NULL;
	...
	status = papiPrinterDisable(svc, "ipp://server/printers/triplicate",
			"because it's Tuesday");
	if (status != PAPI_OK) {
		/* report a failure */
	}
	...
	papiServiceDestroy(svc);

papi_status_t papiJobPromote(papi_service_t handle, char *printer_name,
		int32_t job_id);
INPUTS
	handle	- Handle to the print service on which the job resides.
	name	- Name or URI of the printer associated with the job.
