It is said to identify the output printer, the APP server should reside in the same LAN with the printer.
What if I put the Java applicaiton in the cloud? How can the Java application identify the printer?
Many thanks in advance.
Many thanks for your answer.
I think accessing a local printer for printing a jasperreport from the cloud is as difficult as directly accessing a local printer from a web application backend.
Azure virtual network may be a solution. However it needs technical support and cost.
I would suggest hosting the Java applicaton within our LAN instead, accessing the Azure SQL database via JDBC for its report data.
