Hey everyone, I need some help here !

So I want to print with no user interaction some PDF on the client browser.
For this, I use a servlet and an iframe in my JSP, this way the PDF file is not open :

The servlet :

The JSP code :

It's working pretty fine except it is not completely a silent print since there is a confirmation message from Adobe reader : http://www.freeimagehosting.net/acea3

So my question is what can I do for prevent this message to show up and print the PDF automatically ?

That's not possible, and that's a good thing: imagine the security implications if any random web app could start printing documents on the client side without an user interaction!

Yeah I understand but I imagine there were some trick in Adobe Reader to accept this print request at each times, without users interactions (I can configure all the users PC) ?
