Xml Printing Supported? 追蹤

I want to be able to:

1. Print from a Java application

2. Ideally use an XML web service interface

3. Specify the printer, label template and number of labels within the XML

4. Queue many labels in a print queue that can be administered

5. Use a label designer that is not printer specific and supports most commonly used label printers particularly Zebra and Intermec

6. Is capable of working with ip addressed portable printers without data loss when they go out of Wi-Fi coverage or the battery needs recharging

 

If I am in the right place then can someone point me to the documentation for XML printing

 

Thanks Peter

Yes to pretty much all of this thanks to BarTender's label design capability and print engine, our Windows printer drivers for barcode printers, and the Integration Platform for systems integration.  Here is the documentation for BarTender's XML script:

For information on the Integration Platform which will listen out for your web service requests:

On item 6, we can of course print to mobile printers while on the network, but for offline printing you'd need to make use of the Printer Code Templates (PCT) feature:

I did some more research yesterday and found the BTXML capability which looks like it should do the job.

 

I was not expecting printing to work when out of coverage. Just that any queued labels do not get lost and when coverage is back the printing starts without user intervention.

 

Is there a demo version I can prove the solution with?

I work for a company that integrates mobile to asset management systems and we are looking for a solution we can recommend to our customers.

You can download the 30 day trial edition from the below link:

Seems like the Integration Platform consuming web service request messages containing POSTed XML payload will be you best bet.  Great for mobile too of course.

 

Note that BarTender spools print jobs to the Windows print manager, so print jobs for offline printers will be parked in the spool queue until the printer is reconnected.
