Printing PDF report directly to printer, not using orarrp utility

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
The orarrp utility works only with Windows machines and it
requires installation on both the client machines and servers to
support. We need a more general solution.
Adobe has a java application/applet/javabean (and support
classes) to view PDF, and it is easy to write a java driver
which can be used in place of the orarrp utility. However,
Adobe's Java Viewer is extremely slow, does not produce quality
output, and is explicitly not supported by Adobe.
My question then relates to Reports. When the Report server
returns a PDF in the Previewer, I'm expecting the JINITIATOR,
used by Forms, is also used to support the Report frame and
functionality, including eventual printing. If this is the case,
is there not a set of classes, downloaded with Jinitiator, which
support the fonts, and printing of PDF to locally attached
printers?
And if so, shouldn't we, in Java, be able to make use of these
classes and their APIs to print PDF files directly to locally
attached printers without the need for Previewing first?

The Best Answer

within a forms trigger:
1. generate the report
2. copy from iAS to local
like: webutil_file_transfer.url_to_client()
3. print.exe /d:printer filename (for windows OS)
