Class OutputDeviceAssigned

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Attribute, PrintJobAttribute

public final class OutputDeviceAssigned extends TextSyntax implements PrintJobAttribute
Class OutputDeviceAssigned is a printing attribute class, a text attribute, that identifies the output device to which the service has assigned this job. If an output device implements an embedded Print Service instance, the printer need not set this attribute. If a print server implements a Print Service instance, the value may be empty (zero- length string) or not returned until the service assigns an output device to the job. This attribute is particularly useful when a single service supports multiple devices (so called "fan-out").

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.

      public OutputDeviceAssigned(String deviceName, Locale locale)
      Constructs a new output device assigned attribute with the given device name and locale.

    • equals

      public boolean equals(Object object)
      Returns whether this output device assigned attribute is equivalent to the passed in object. To be equivalent, all of the following conditions must be true:
      1. object is not null.
      2. object is an instance of class OutputDeviceAssigned.
      3. This output device assigned attribute's underlying string and object's underlying string are equal.
      4. This output device assigned attribute's locale and object's locale are equal.
      equals in class TextSyntax
      object - Object to compare to
      true if object is equivalent to this output device assigned attribute, false otherwise

    • getCategory

      public final Class<? extends Attribute> getCategory()
      Get the printing attribute class which is to be used as the "category" for this printing attribute value.

      printing attribute class (category), an instance of class java.lang.Class
    • getName

      public final String getName()
      Get the name of the category of which this attribute value is an instance.

      For class OutputDeviceAssigned, the category name is "output-device-assigned".

      Specified by:
      getName in interface Attribute
      attribute category name
