I need to search for the print services capable of printing the specified attribute.
This search is to performed at the client and not server.

For this we can make use of methods ( printJobCompleted , printJobFailed ..... ) defined in PrintJobListener interface . How should one check the status ( on line and off line ) of the printer. Do we have any third part api to check the status of the printer ?.
PS : I am not sure If I should be opening up a new the thread for this issue but as the issue is connected to the earlier issues faced by me , I have continued the discussion here.
Currently no Java api provides support to check the status of the printer. Thanks Ulf Dittmer for your timely help. It can be done only through the use of script.
