Description
Release:  Merlin

Problem: 
   This API is the product of JSR006, Unified Printing API, and will allow 
   client applications to provide rich access to the capablities of print           services available such as printer browsing and selection,
   and discovery of the capablities of those printers, selection of printers for    a printer job, specification of a printer job such as paper sizes, etc.
   Availability of specific capabalities is necessarily dependent on the            underlying print service. 

   Since all capabilities will be exposed though API server applications become     first class citizens of this API. 

   Server applications may be beneficiaries of the capabilities for spooling        documents to print services, whereas previously only graphics calls
   could be used to generate printer jobs from Java applications. 

Requesters:
   Java2D, Xerox, JINI Printing Group, JustSystems
