Hi guys,
I have a JSP page which has a hyperlink to a pdf file. I want to print this PDF file without opening it... Can someone help me out with this, and it is real fast and urgent...

Instead of linking directly to the PDF, link to a servlet which will write the PDF to its response after setting appropriate content-type headers. This has actually been discussed a number of times in these forums.
Search through this and the Servlets forums for 'PDF' and you should find lots of info.

OK, I just discovered that this was cross-posted in the HTML forum.
Please do not cross-post the same question in mutliple forums. It creates redundant conversations that just wastes peoples' time.
Please continue any discussion here.
