Hi all,

I have various customers that do use remote print servers from the 
application servers and therefore do not see remote printers added 
without restarting the JVM of the application server using the current 
implementation. Because I do not want to tweak with reflection on the 
Windows PrintServiceLookup implementation in the long run, I would like 
to help implementing a alternate solution that also handles remote 
printers as well.

I would like to discuss a possible solution for this problem using a the 
RegistryKeyChangeEvent on printer registry keys instead of the 
FindFirstPrinterChangeNotification call as described in the following 


Cheers Patrick
