Advanced options like duplex printing or tray selections

I always wondered how to use the advanced options in printers like duplex printing, tray selection etc. from E-Business Suite.

Metalink Note 394130.1 How To Enable Printer Options Such As Duplex Printing Or Tray Selections For Bitmap Concurrent Programs.

Pasta and XML Publisher does not have the ability to enable printer options such as duplex printing or printer tray selection for a bitmap concurrent program.

Oracle has advised contacting Adobe or the printer vendor for a PPD (Postscript Printer Definition) file that supports the desired function or features associated with the make and model of printer being used.

Refer to metalink note 394130.1 for more details.

Out of necessity, I had to develop a system that allowed tray selection and duplexing on a PDF document that uses Pasta to convert the output to Postscript. The standard driver, Pasta_PDF, was modified to allow the additional features. For more information, feel free to email me at
