What you wrote sounds really misterious and not quite aproipriate for
that list (specially the piece on "printing in Java" ;-) but I'll try
to clarify it as much as I can.

If you mean client-side printing (using a "print" button) - it is
really only dependent on your users and their location ;-).
And if  you mean printing some conetnt on the server-side connected
printing spool it should be rather easy to set up, although AFAIK
there's no direct Zope support. 
Basically it would some kind of "os.popen" wrapper spooling a
specific printing deamon.
