Hi,
Our company require to print labels from our website. We have a PHP website running on Linux server and we want to integrate BarTender with that website.
Any solution please?

BarTender and our printer drivers are Windows only. You could run this on a Windows based web server, and hook up a web service between the servers to relay print request and resulting print jobs back and forth.

This would be helpful to me as well. We have purchased and installed the WPS server and are able to print labels from the served IIS page. I am not finding, however, any information on what I need to POST to the service URL to print labels from another web application. Is there any documentation with guidance on SOAP, REST, or other methods?

Thanks,
Woody

No documentation for this exists yet. Reason: We do not offer a Web Service feature, but we hope to in the future.

Once a developer understands our BarTender SDK it is very straight forward to build a WCF web service wrapper to use it. Google has a wealth of information. Search on "Create a WCF web service". Here is one example: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ericwhite/archive/2010/05/11/getting-started-building-a-wcf-web-service.aspx

Hi Ian,

Thanks for the link. I have plenty of experience with .NET and web services, but it may very well help some other readers. Before I found your reply I had already whipped together a quick web service that runs alongside bartender, that receives ZPL from the cloud and writes it to any number of printers using name, ip address, and port stored in the config file. It doesn't use (or need) any of the bartender API to do this.

Our company software operates in the cloud, but of course our label printers are local. When I saw your 'Web Print Server' application with print from any platform, I assumed that would be a Web Service. I was in disbelief when your tech support guy phoned me to tell me that in fact there is no web service. Even though it only took about an hour, writing my own web print service wasn't my first choice. I wanted an off-the-shelf solution. I hate to say it, but I think you guys are missing the boat, and at this point I'm not sure how bartender does anything for us since I'm not using any of the bartender package.

Hi Ian and Woody,

I am also interested in the exact same feature (a web service to allow us to connect various applications to the Bartender WPS via SOAP or REST).

 

Woody, would you be willing to share your Web Service wrapper?

Bartender - hope you guys add this as an official feature soon!

Thanks,
Tom

At this time I'm unable to go into details, so please don't ask, but we have a new release coming soon that will include functionality that addresses this particular need.  Stay tuned to our new website (http://www.seagullscientific.com), that we launched just the other day, for further announcements.
