Hi;

This is a code that I got from the examples in Oracle in using the javax.print

When i try to compile and run a get an error saying

javax.print.PrintException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: URI is not hierarchical

package printtry;

Come on now Zaad! You have been here long enough to know that you should always include the line number when you post an error message! But presumably it's line 35/6 - is that URI valid? Does the file exist?

This excerpt from, the URI API doc mau help?

A hierarchical URI is either an absolute URI whose scheme-specific part begins with a slash character, or a relative URI, that is, a URI that does not specify a scheme. Some examples of hierarchical URIs are:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/
docs/guide/collections/designfaq.html#28
../../../demo/jfc/SwingSet2/src/SwingSet2.java
file:///~/calendar

Looks to me like you may need new URI("file:///c:/sss.xps")

Sorry about that line was 70

Because the console only gives :
avax.print.PrintException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: URI is not hierarchical

and the exception is thrown from line 70

Thanks an lot for this... This helped and is working...........
