Description
Printing on Unix based platforms is currently directly generated Postscript spooled by execing a system command.

The postScript can be improved to provide better, faster printing of
text and images.
This could also be extended to include PDF generation as this is
now widely requested.

Additionally the Internet Printing Protocol is gaining acceptance. JDK is well
matched to this and by taking advantage of this support can make

This feature RFE includes the following individual RFEs:-
4638071 RFE: Javax.print to use IPP services 
4521945 Java 2D: RFE: improve efficiency of printing for indexed colour images
4182445 RFE: java printing API does not compress image rendering

This feature has been added for Tiger release

======================================================================

CUPS support is fixed in Tiger which includes PDF printing.

###@###.### 2003-07-30
===================================

I am marking this feature integrated in tiger (1.5) to reflect the
integration of component RFEs:
4182445 RFE: java printing API does not compress image rendering
4683270: Start supporting CUPS printing.

this latter one includes some of the implementation necessary for
4638071 RFE: Javax.print to use IPP services although that is exposed
only via CUPS as other targeted IPP services weren't ready for testing.

One RFE targeted at performance:
4521945 Java 2D: RFE: improve efficiency of printing for indexed colour images

remains outstanding
