Implement printing from backend

It should be possible to print documents and views from a background agent on Domino and Notes

    One way to implement printing would be if lotus.domino.Document and lotus.domino.View (and maybe some others) would implement java.awt.print.Printable. Finding a device would then be up to the agent code. Of course this would work in Java only. But that would be sufficient from my point of view.

    Another option would be a backend version of NotesUIDocument.print() / NotesUIView.print(). Less flexible but maybe easier to implement?

    What device would the background agent (on the server?) be using for printing?
