OSGD is from the perspective of the applications a kind of virtual printer. Printer jobs are sent to OSGD in Postscript format, where they are converted into PDFs and sent to the clients. The PDF document is hereby displayed in the local PDF viewer and can be physically printed on a local printer. The user is able to manage his/her virtual prints in the Webtop.
Besides this generic method of virtual printing via PDF, Printers can also be directly coupled between the client and application. The perquisite is that the necessary printer drivers are available for both the application servers as well as the clients.
