Hi,
Here is my problem.
I've developed a RCP application (A) that draws some elements on a SWT canvas.
These elements are text, barcode, images...
Now, I have to export what is drawn in a file so that another application (B) can print it.

Here are the constraints:
* WYSIWYG : what is printed by application B is exactly the same as what is displayed by application A (element positions, bounds...).
* Application B is not written in eclipse RCP. It expects one file that describes what should be printed.
* The application A can export a lot of pages to print (up to 20 000)

What is the best way to do this?
I think about two solutions:
* export images
* use a PCL/PS virtual printer driver to export a PCL/PS script file.

Thank you to give me your opinion on this subject.

Best regards,

Philippe
