Hi,
Is there a way to search for resources in a network using Java ? To be more specific, I need to locate all Printers in a Network (My Network). Does Java
support have feature using which I can achieve this functionality?
Thanks
Arun

I'd say no, since the capability of looking up printers on the network is Windows-specific. Maybe you could get javax.print.PrintServiceLookup to do what you want, but I think that only returns printers that have already been set up locally (or printers that use Jini, if there are any).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
