We do print PDF in batch. Excel spreadsheets, not. For the PDF, we use a
trick with Infoprint server to create a spooled bitmap of the PDF document
and then release that to a printer.

My issue would be, how to print it, in batch.

That has been a curiosity of mine too. You can embed images in HTML or PDF
stream files, for example. But how do you send an HTML file, or a PDF file,
to a printer, without first opening it in a browser, or PDF reader?

Batch is the question. What if the user doesn't want the manual step of
opening the stream file, and printing it? Just sending the stream file to
the printer automatically. And keeping the processing on IBM i, rather than
using a PC to print the file.
