I have a java application that currently sends postscript, PCL or PDF files to a Unix Print Server for printing. I am looking at extending this to support Zebra printers.
It would be a trivial change to get the application to produce an image output.
I can see in the Link-OS SDK API I can see that printing an image directly to a printer would be simple, using com.zebra.sdk.printer.GraphicsUtil.printImage.
However the application cannot talk directly to the printers.
Instead I need to access the ZPL that is generated, as a file, and send this to the Print Server. This will talk to the printer.
The SDK appears to assume there is a direct connection to the printer.
Is there some way of getting the output file? Or is there a different API or SDK I should be looking at?
