Hi all and thanx for all of your suggestions.

Sorry for being unclear in my problem description.
Let me just explain a few important issues that regards this case.
The user is *not* an i5 user.
All the user does is select a template (.rtf) and selects a dataset to be merged into the template. The template is .rtf for the users to easily edit it using their "favourite" word processor. The process of merging the data with the template is all batch (/mail-merge/), and may result in hundreds of different documents (so displaying them all is not an option). The resulting documents are to be printed on a predefined or selected network printer. If it helps that this printer is defined on the i5, so be it.

I use I text to read the PDF file into a browser and launch the print to the user's default network printer. Itext has a sample of this in their documentation.
If this is being done from the as400. Use Client access to launch a PC Start 
that launches a URL. This cannot be done on a dumb terminal (please don't tell 
me you are still using them).

Hi Ashish.

Thank you for your reply.

In my case, displaying anything is not an option. I need complete the process including the print without user intervention.
What is that IBM product?

If you are running the process on AS400, there is a
IBM product to do it, other then that i was not able
to tackle the issue, so just gave a web page to
display the PDF file from IFS on AS400

Hi list.

I'm sure some of you have had this challenge before
and solved it, so I'm bravely asking.

Printing (rtf's and pdf's) from a java
web-application running under WAS 5.1 on an i5.

The story is that I'm generating an rtf or a pdf
document based on some user activity on the web. This document is processed in batch (the user will not see it until it is printed) and should be printed on a predefined (for the user) network (not i5) printer.

Any hints or suggestions.
