           PrintRequestAttributeSet attributes)
           throws PrintException
Print a MultiDoc with the specified job attributes. This method should only be called once for a given print job. Calling it again will not result in a new job being spooled to the printer.

multiDoc - The documents to be printed. ALL must be a flavor supported by the PrintJob & PrintService.
attributes - The job attributes to be applied to this print job. If this parameter is null then the default attributes are used.
PrintException - The exception additionally may implement an interfaces which more precisely describes the cause of the exception

  • AttributeException. If one or more of the attributes are not valid for this print job.
