Please, am developing an application that will be used for printing receipt but i don't know if there is a library for connecting my Java application to the pos printer. The printer is "sam4s ellix 2011s POS printer." Please your help will be highly appreciated.
Thanks.

Here's a starting point for printing from Java code: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/jps/spec/JPSTOC.fm.html. Chapter 1 has basic code that selects a printer and prints to it; if the driver for your printer is installed, I would expect it to be one of the available options in the PrintService[] services array.

@ Ulf Dittmer. Thanks very much, what am thinking is the paper size of pos printer if the basic printing library will work?
Thanks

No idea. See what the printer documentation says, and give it a try.
