The next table lists the object classes that InfoPrint supports. The destination class is subdivided into logical and actual destinations.
|Auxiliary sheet||Represents a sheet of paper, blank or otherwise, that precedes a job, separates copies in a job, or follows a job; or a user exit program that produces output that can be printed on an auxiliary sheet or logged.|
|Default document||Represents default attribute values for a document in a job. Also called initial value document.|
|Default job||Represents default attribute values for a job. Also called initial value job.|
|Destination (actual)||Represents the output device that InfoPrint uses to print or send the job. It is not the actual output device. It is a software

A physical printer is an actual destination that represents a printer device. An email destination represents an electronic mailing system.
|Destination (logical)||Represents an abstract entity to which users submit jobs for printing or transmission.
The logical destination provides restrictions and defaults for the job. It also verifies
that associated actual destinations capable of handling the jobs exist. Once the logical
destination verifies the job, InfoPrint sends it to an associated queue, from which it is routed to an actual destination.
The term logical printer is used for logical destinations that route jobs to physical printers.
|Document||Represents a grouping of data in a job: either a printable file or a resource that is not printable by itself, for example, a font.|
|Job||Represents one or more documents submitted together in one request.|
|Log||Represents a collection of messages or message segments added to a file for data collection purposes. InfoPrint uses two types of logs: error and trace.|
