PostScript 3 and JDF

Can a printer that supports PostScript 3 and PDF direct, support the use of JDF files?  I would like to send a JDF file to perform such tasks as tray selection, number of copies or duplexing.  I am using Lexmark C736 and C935.  If they do support this functionality, is it just a matter of sending the xml and then the pdf ?

Thanks,

Can is very different than does!

This seems like a question that you should pose to Lexmark directly.

Hello Pictet,

  As per my little understanding in printing systems, JDF is a standard way of communication and which needs to be converted to binary format say raw format to print. JDF is evovled in recent years, so may be the feature you are asking will be answered in adavanced RIP which built in in the future Printers. As of now RIP process only for postscript and picking up the trays like job instructions can't be passed using PS, it can be through JDF , and response and tracking back with JMF. But here JDF implementation you need to have Print controller (MIS) which takes the JDF in hotfolder, this is expensive sytem and demands each printer to be connected to one MIS... Still we may have to wait for a proper implementation with less budget and simple architecture untill printer manufactures support native JDF support.

as @Dov Isaacs said, we may have to follow the manufacturer for this.
