I need a way to print PDF files from a server directory with no human intervention. I'll know what printer I want to print on from the server and the name of the PDF file. I just want the process to spool the PDF file by running some process or workflow or something. I can even invoke a service from a SOA BPEL if that is available. What is the best solution for this? I'm going to have a process request a service to put a PDF file in a specific directory on the server and I need a way to spool that PDF to a specific network printer without a human being involved. What is the best way to do this?
You can use a watched folder (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/adminHelp/admin.htm?content=000108.html) where files are being put after that you can use sendToPrinter operation (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/services.pdf). Hope this helps.
