Hi guys,
I have noticed that the performance of my Java applications goes down considerably when some printing is taking place in computer. It does'nt matter whether the printing was invoked by the java program or any other program, the performance becomes extremely sluggish and the gui becomes less responsive while the printing is going on.
When the printing is over the program starts working properly again.
Does anybody has any idea/explaination as to what is happinging and how can i remove this relationship between printing and performance of my java programs.
Thanks in advance,
Vishal

With Windows XP, I have noticed the same. It appears that when printing it does not give other processes much execution time. I suppose you could give all your Java Threads max priority but I don't know if that will do any good.

Hi,
I tried the thread priority solutino but the apps performance really sucks while some printing activity is going on the system. The same does'nt happen when I try to print on a network printer on a different computer. I think that this problem exists on the windows platform.
Does any body has any idea if this problem persists on non-windows platform also.
Thanks in advance.
