There are not many user stories so far. Users of Cups4J are encouraged to provide a short project description to show others what can be done with Cups4J and probably provide help in user forums.

  • Fiscal authority (Lower Saxony - Germany) has about 1000+ users working with one enterprise application that integrated Cups4J. Users are printing on hundreds of printers through distributed CUPS 1.3 servers. About 2000 print jobs are processed every day.
  • Vanderbilt University Medical Center has two or three hundred printers used for remote printing of medical documents, where staff using the printers needs to be able to print seamlessly from any workstation to a specific printer.  CUPS is our remote printing solution, and CUPS4J allowed us an easy way to create a service that different applications can call to print documents to these printers.  We currently use CUPS4J in our print service to print to both 1.2 and 1.3 CUPS servers, as we are transitioning printers from an old server to a new one gradually.  We have thousands of print jobs flowing through this service and CUPS4J daily.
