Do you guys use specific libraries to print invoices with dot matrix printers?

Thanks for any suggestions, I want to do something like that.

Check out the Java Print Service API in the javax.print package. I doubt you'll find anything specific to dot matrix printers in that API though since "Print invoices to dot matrix printers" is a very specific use case and libraries tend to be more general in nature. Are you perhaps looking for drivers for your dot matrix printer?

I second that. If the machine you're running your code on can use a printer, then most likely the Java code can use it, too.
