Max,

I went through a dozen printers and drivers, two printer vendors and their
help desks, and each was unsuccessful. They all talked about, "well if the
printer can support this" or "if there is certain software on the printer
and it has an internal server" and such and they all failed. If you (or
anyone else) is successful I'd love to see how, but to be honest I will
recommend this s/w to any future employer/client of mine based upon its
simplicity and functionality. Lots of times that you want a PDF to
auto-print, and to be able to do so in duplex is certainly a cost savings.

Steve

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the hint but just for the sake of argument, is there no way to
get this done without any 3rd party tools? Like adjusting the printer
attributes to duplex before printing and then changing it back?

Max,

I had a similar project. The problem you have is that Duplex is not a
file attribute, it is a print attribute. Purchased this:
https://www.pdf-tools.com/pdf20/en/products/pdf-rendering-desktop-tools/pdf-
printer/. The "Service" version runs great. Then, you setup the rules on
the PDF Server to have the service "monitor" a folder, apply the attributes
(like print in duplex) and it routes it to the appropriate printer and
prints as desired. A simple FTP of the PDF file from the IFS to the
appropriate folder on the print server and it's on its way. Easy to setup
and use, even better, very affordable. Our ROI was less that 4 months on
the initial purchase and then less then 3 weeks for the ongoing maintenance
costs compared against the user time (on our project) and the savings in
paper. They have a great help support, as well, and will give you a 30-day
license for to demo the software. Take a look. Is then also available for
use by other areas of the company; anoth
er
great selling point.

Subject: Print PDF in duplex mode

Hi
I have a PDF document that is stored in the iSeries' IFS folder and
want to print it using Java that is running in the iSeries' JVM. Just
printing the PDF and sending it to the outqueue works perfectly fine
but now I want to to print it in Duplex mode using

----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------
String outqueueName = "/QSYS.LIB/QUSRSYS.LIB/" + outqueue + ".OUTQ";
OutputQueue outputQueue = new OutputQueue(as400, outqueueName);
parms.setParameter(PrintObject.ATTR_OUTPUT_QUEUE,
outputQueue.getPath()); parms.setParameter(PrintObject.ATTR_HOLD, hold
? "*YES" : "*NO"); parms.setParameter(PrintObject.ATTR_SAVE, save ?
"*YES" : "*NO"); parms.setParameter(PrintObject.ATTR_SPOOLFILE, "");
parms.setParameter(PrintObject.ATTR_DUPLEX, "*YES");

SpooledFileOutputStream outputStream = new
SpooledFileOutputStream(as400, parms, null, null);
----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------

but it still just prints single page mode.
Does anyone have an idea what I am missing here?

Max
