Class Fidelity

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Attribute, PrintJobAttribute, PrintRequestAttribute

public final class Fidelity
extends EnumSyntax
implements PrintJobAttribute, PrintRequestAttribute
Class Fidelity is a printing attribute class, an enumeration, that indicates whether total fidelity to client supplied print request attributes is required. If FIDELITY_TRUE is specified and a service cannot print the job exactly as specified it must reject the job. If FIDELITY_FALSE is specified a reasonable attempt to print the job is acceptable. If not supplied the default is FIDELITY_FALSE.

IPP Compatibility: The IPP boolean value is "true" for FIDELITY_TRUE and "false" for FIDELITY_FALSE. The category name returned by getName() is the IPP attribute name. The enumeration's integer value is the IPP enum value. The toString() method returns the IPP string representation of the attribute value. See RFC 2911 Section 15.1 for a fuller description of the IPP fidelity attribute.
