Printing of doc files

P: n/a
db
Hi group

I have noticed that the printing framework in java supports a great deal of files, but not MS/Word .doc files. So if I want to print doc files what should I do? Get a lib that supports doc files? Get a lib that can convert doc files to a filetype the printing framework supports (like pdf)? Any ideas?

You could try the package from www.apache.org , more precisely the POI
project group which develops a library for reading and writing doc files.
Once you make it an object in java, you can use the printing api.

Try visit jakarta.apache.org/poi/. I don't know whether they support
printing though.
