For Open VMS the native job submission methods are available.
Standard support is provided for all types of network printers supporting LPD (RFC 1179) job submission protocol. Enhanced support is provided for printers supplied by several vendors.
Virtually any format is supported, given that the target printer is capable to interpret this format. The advanced support is available for PostScript documents. The XML format is supported using XSL technology. The standard option is available that provides the extensive support for Xerox VIPP. The third party format conversion software may be integrated to support document formats not directly interpreted by printers.
