When Should Weblink be Used?

Weblink can transport any information related to device management, transactional data and information to be processed at a later time. It can be used as part of an overall cost reduction solution that leverages web technologies.
Typically, an application called a ‘servlet’ is created and run on the internet based server, waiting for printers to connect and interact with the servlet. These servlet applications can provide a variety of functions – from sending operating system updates to the printer, to receiving data from the printer and, in turn, using that data to trigger events in other systems.
For example, a solution could be created that would feature the printer consuming data from a Bluetooth® scanner connected to the printer – with that scanned data then being sent from the printer to the internet-based servlet. The servlet would then seek out additional details related to the scanned data, format a document, and then send it to the printer for printing.
