Class PrinterName

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.print.attribute.TextSyntax
      extended by javax.print.attribute.standard.PrinterName
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Attribute, PrintServiceAttribute

public final class PrinterName
extends TextSyntax
implements PrintServiceAttribute

Class PrinterName is a printing attribute class, a text attribute, that specifies the name of a printer. It is a name that is more end-user friendly than a URI. An administrator determines a printer's name and sets this attribute to that name. This name may be the last part of the printer's URI or it may be unrelated. In non-US-English locales, a name may contain characters that are not allowed in a URI.

IPP Compatibility: The string value gives the IPP name value. The locale gives the IPP natural language. The category name returned by getName() gives the IPP attribute name.
