Does anyone know how or even if it is possible to check for such errors using the Java Comm API concerning the printer, such as if there is a paper jam, or if the printer is online and so forth. It seems like the only checking is concerning the comm port. If it makes it that far, it's good.

Would this be a case of sending a status request from Java to the printer via the com port and reading what was sent back?
