Help needed:Printing HTML file using javax.print

I am using the following code which i got form the forum for rpinting an HTML file.
The folllowing code is working fine, but the problem is the content of HTML file is not getting printed. I am geeting a blank page with no content. What is the change that is required in the code? ALso is there any simpler way to implement this. Help needed ASAP.

I have had printing problems too a year and a half ago. I used all printing apis of java and I still find that it is something java lacks. Now basically you can try autosense. To check whether your printer is capable of printing the docflavor use this PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(flavor, aset); . If it lists the printer then he can print the document otherwise he can't. I guess that is why you get the error.

  • Help needed in splitting files using BPM

    Hello experts,
    I am working on an interface where i need to split files within BPM.
    I know,i can achieve it in Message Mapping by mapping Recordset to Target structure and then using Interface Mapping within Transformation step.But i dont want to follow this.Is there an alternative way to achieve this within BPM.
    I have an input file with multiple headers and i need to split for each header.My input file looks like this:
    Is there a way, where i can specify this condition within BPM , that split files for every H.
    Thanks in advance.

    have your target structure with occurence as 0...unbounded in the mapping and map the header filed to the root node (repeating parent node) of the target structure....this will create as many target messages as the header fileds....if you want to send these messages separately then use a block in BPM with ForEach option....
    Splitting and Dynamic configuration can be applied in the same mapping.

    HI Hareesh,
    i have gone through that blog.
    i tried it...but i am getting mapping error  no receiver determination fond because there are so  many excel files.
    my data is available on sharedString.xml but also it is in not same order.
    i have no clue how to handle this part form the blog.
    "This way our mapping will receive all data from the sheet in an XML format. The only thing that's left is to create an XSD file from the XML file we received in order to be able to use it in the mapping and as our Service Interface and we can proceed with mapping. As you can see from the sheet.xml files all the data is placed with column name and row number so it's not that difficult to map it to an table type format using the Message Mapping only (no java, abap mapping required)."

  • Help - need printer recommendations

    I just bought a MacBook pro and need a printer for high quality photo printing that will double as an everyday document printer and won't cost me an arm and a leg. Reliability is key - my last printer was absolute crap. Your advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

    i would recommend buying a simple black and white laser printer for your everyday printing needs. i bought a used HP LaserJet 4 off eBay about 5 years ago for $150 shipped. The cartridges for those are about $70-$90, but in 5 years i bought only 2, becayse they last forever. plus that printer has a network connection. The downside is that it is pretty big and ugly.
    You can also find a used HP LaserJet 1100, those are way smaller than the one i have and cartridges run about $50, but you still get the same great laser quiality and dont spend nearly as much money on supplies as you would with an Ink Jet

  • Edit HTML File using java

    I have a report in HTML format and a list of thresholds in txt format.
    Now, using java how can I:
    1. Compare the values in the report with the thresholds
    2. Edit the report such that values over the thresholds are highlighted in say, red colour.
    I am new to Java programming, so java jargons won't be of much help. I read about jeditorpane but it's primary use is to display html file(that is what i inferred). Is their a way in which i could accomplish the above using jeditorpane?? do i do the comparison part??

  • How to generate PDF file from HTML file using Acrobat API's

    I want to generate a PDF file from an HTML file on server side(C# .Net).
    Their is a COM interop called "AcrobatWeb2PDF" availaible but could not find any document regarding how to use it.
    I cant use "Adobe live cycle PDF Generator" as we just have license for Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional.
    Please help...
    Thanks and Regards,
    Anand Mahadik.

    > It is hard to believe that Adobe doesn't provide a toolkit for generating PDF files, so many web based applications have vector based content that needs to be converted to PDF!!!!
    They do, it's just not free (A company in business to make money? I'm sure IBM would never think this way... ;)). As mentioned you have Adobe LiveCycle PDF Generator, which you can customize and extend with Java. You also have the Adobe PDF Library SDK, which is written for use with C/C++ although if you license it from Datalogics (the only company in NA Adobe allows to license the PDF Library) you will also get .NET and Java interfaces (part of the DLE - DataLogics Extensions).

    JavaScript? Not really, no. As far as I'm aware JavaScript has no file system access capabilities without some form of intermediary (like sending the data to a webservice that writes it out to file). How would you create a PDF file with JavaScript?
    The PDF Standard is also in ISOs hands now (ISO 32000-1:2008), it is no longer owned by Adobe - you can download a copy of the specification from them and write your own library based on that as well.

  • Help needed making SWF file loop

    Hello Everyone-
    I have been researching this topic and am really struggling.
    I'm not much of a HTML guy and I think I'll need to do some to
    resolve my issues. I have searched and searched but I'm not having
    any luck.
    I create an animation in Apple Motion, exported it as a MOV
    and imported it as video into Flash CS3. It was encoded using
    Progressive download from server it creates a FLV file a SWF file
    and an HTML file. My provider is 1and1. I then use Adobe GoLive to
    create my webpage and upload to the web. I need my SWF file to loop
    and I cannot get it to loop.
    In flash. Everything plays fine. When I do a publish preview
    however, the swf file does not loop. I've got the loop option
    checked in my publish preview settings and even in the inspector in
    GoLive but it does nothing.
    Here is the link to the page. And the source code. If anyone
    can help me that would be genius.
    PS there is actually two SWF that I need to loop. Neither of
    them are looping.

    The problem you are encountering is that you are telling the
    SWF to loop, when in fact you need to tell the FLV to loop.
    Unfortunately, you need to code a few lines of Actionscript
    to get this to work, you would think that it would be as simple as
    just checking an option.
    I don't know if you have an AS2 or AS3 project, so I'm going
    to give you both for the code.
    Actionscript 2:
    1. Select the FLVPlayback component on the stage.
    2. In the Actions panel, enter the following:
    this.autoRewind = true;;
    Actionscript 3:
    1. Select the FLVPlayback component on the stage, and give it
    an instance name by entering some text in the properties panel.
    (Upper left corner of the panel, right under where it says
    "Component" there is a text input box. This is where you input it.)
    Names are commonly things like "myFLVPlayback" or "myVideo" etc.
    2. Deselect everything.
    3. In the actions panel, enter the following (replacing
    "myVideo" with the instance name you chose):
    function doLoop(evt:VideoEvent):void {;
    Either of those blocks of code should work for you. Simply
    add them to your flash project and re-export the SWF.

  • Help needed deleting corrupted file

    I have a corrupted file on my hard disk. It is a Vault backup file created by Aperture. Whenever I do anything with the file (e.g., try to unlock it, try to view info, try to open it), the o/s immediately tells me that I have to manually turn off the system (which is what I understand to be a kernel panic).
    I have tried to delete the file using the terminal window and by placing the file into a folder and moving the folder to trash. In all cases, I'm told to manually shut down the computer (even when I tried to empty the trash).
    It's a 30 gig file, so I'd like to be able to delete it in order to save the hard disk space. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'll reformat the drive if I have to, but I'd prefer to remove just the file.
    Thanks for your help.

    Sometimes it happens that the Finder just doesn't want to empty the trash anymore and says "The operation cannot be completed because the item "" is in use.". That's a good warning if it is true, but sometimes you want to get rid of an application and this warning appears even though the only thing running is the Finder. Usually after a restart you can delete it. But that is very time consuming and even then, it is sometimes still stuck not wanting to be deleted. There is a risky command that can be used in the Terminal that will empty the trash no matter what. Risky because a simple error in the syntax could erase a lot of stuff that you want to keep.
    There is a much easier and quicker way of forcing the Finder to empty the trash no matter what! It is done in the freeware customization and maintenance application OnyX (download @ ). Once you loaded OnyX and entered your administrator password, choose "Cleaning" in the top bar. Click on the "Trash" tab. You can now choose whether you want to "Delete" or to "Securely Delete" (by overwriting) and click Execute. That's it, it will force the Finder to empty the trash even if the files are in use!
