I am looking for some reliable solution to print pdf from an applet,pref. using java apis. We want to avoid using external libraries, so as not to increse the download time.

Any luck with this?

Java doesn't support printing of PDF documents so far. You need to use external libraries such as jPDFPrint by Qoppa Software. They have a live demo applet to print PDF documents on their website and also provide the sample code for the applet. http://www.qoppa.com/jprindex.html.
