Subject Re: PDF Printing: multiple copies
Date Sat, 09 May 2015 00:00:23 GMT
Hi!

John, maybe it was, but I still get only one page printed out.
I'm using this code:
private static void printWithPDFBox2(File pdfFile, int copies) {
        PDDocument document = null;

        try {
            document = PDDocument.load(pdfFile);

            PrinterJob printJob = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob();
            printJob.setJobName(pdfFile.getName());

printJob.setPrintService(PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService());

            printJob.setCopies(copies);
            HashPrintRequestAttributeSet printRequestAttributeSet = new
HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();
            printRequestAttributeSet.add(new Copies(copies));
            printRequestAttributeSet.add(SheetCollate.COLLATED);
            PDFPrinter printer = new PDFPrinter(document,
Scaling.ACTUAL_SIZE, Orientation.AUTO);
            printer.print(printJob, printRequestAttributeSet);
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        } finally {
            if (document != null) {
                try {
                    document.close();
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                }
            }
        }
    }

When the print dialog is displayed I see field "Number of copies:" set to 5
and "Collate" is checked, but, again, only one page is printed out.

I've tried with Java products for working with PDF that cost thousands od $
and also only get one page out. It is something with my printer or
something in Java.
I'm working on Linux, so I'm using cups-pdf package that provides a PDF
printer. So, I'm printing PDF files via Java and I get out a PDF file. :)
If I use the code above, I get a PDF file with one page, but if I do: "lpr
-#5 -o Collate=True example.pdf" I get a PDF with 5 pages, becuase
example.pdf has only one page.

Any ideas why I'm getting one page PDF in Java?

Best regards,
    Kovi
