Submitting jobs from other applications
If your application can use REST web services, you can use the submitFile utility to submit a file to a workflow or hot folder. See Preparing to submit jobs using web services for more detailed information about this implementation.
The key functions of input devices are to:
- Receive jobs into the system.
- Assign jobs to workflows.
- Send jobs to the first step in the workflow to begin processing.
Hot folder input devices can receive a variety of print jobs, including those that are submitted with JDF job tickets. LPD input devices can receive print jobs submitted using a line printer (LPR) command.
