Here is a simple Java program showing how to use jPDFPrint to print a PDF document to a printer driver file format. In this example, the printer outputs a pcl file (Printer Command Language) but printers might output a prn file or postcript file.

// Load the PDF document
PDFPrint pdfPrint = new PDFPrint("input.pdf", null);
 
// Create attribute set to print to a file
File outputFile = new File ("output.pcl");
PrintRequestAttributeSet attrSet = new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet (new Destination (outputFile.toURI()));
 
// Send the PDF to the printer
pdfPrint.print ("printer name", null, attrSet);

To use Qoppa’s library jPDFProcess instead of jPDFPrint, replace PDFPrint with PDFDocument in the code above.
