Hello All ,
This posts talks about a requirement of printing a simple page (not much component as, form,tree,etc & not much data)
you can use a simple one liner javascript function to invoke browser's print dialog.

  • there is a page with Departments table on it, and a button to print this page

  • Called this simple javascript function on button click to open print dialog

  • window.print();

  • to execute javascript through managed bean use this method 

  •     /**Method to execute Javascript
         * @param javascriptCode
        public static void runJavaScriptCode(String javascriptCode) {
            FacesContext facesCtx = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
            ExtendedRenderKitService service = Service.getRenderKitService(facesCtx, ExtendedRenderKitService.class);
            service.addScript(facesCtx, javascriptCode);
