public abstract class StreamPrintService extends Object implements PrintService
PrintServiceand represents a print service that prints data in different formats to a client-provided output stream. This is principally intended for services where the output format is a document type suitable for viewing or archiving. The output format must be declared as a mime type. This is equivalent to an output document flavor where the representation class is always "java.io.OutputStream" An instance of the
StreamPrintServiceclass is obtained from a
Note that a
StreamPrintService is different from a
PrintService, which supports a
StreamPrintService always requires an output
stream, whereas a
PrintService optionally accepts a
has no default destination for its formatted output.
StreamPrintService is expected to generate
a format useful in other contexts.
StreamPrintService's are not expected to support the Destination attribute.

public void dispose()
StreamPrintService. If a stream service cannot be re-used, it must be disposed to indicate this. Typically the client will call this method. Services which write data which cannot meaningfully be appended to may also dispose the stream. This does not close the stream. It just marks it as not for further use by this service.
public boolean isDisposed()
booleanindicating whether or not this
StreamPrintServicehas been disposed. If this object has been disposed, will return true. Used by services and client applications to recognize streams to which no further data should be written.
