SecurityManager checkPrintJobAccess() Method



The java.lang.SecurityManager.checkPrintJobAccess() method throws a SecurityException if the calling thread is not allowed to initiate a print job request. This method calls checkPermission with the RuntimePermission("queuePrintJob") permission. If you override this method, then you should make a call to super.checkPrintJobAccess at the point the overridden method would normally throw an exception.


Following is the declaration for java.lang.SecurityManager.checkPrintJobAccess() method

public void checkPrintJobAccess()


  • NA

Return Value

This method does not return a value.


  • SecurityException -- if the calling thread does not have permission to initiate a print job request.


Our examples require that the permissions for each command is blocked. A new policy file was set that allows only the creating and setting of our Security Manager. The file is in C:/java.policy and contains the following text:

grant {
  permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "setSecurityManager";
  permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "createSecurityManager";
  permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "usePolicy";

The following example shows the usage of lang.SecurityManager.checkPrintJobAccess() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

public class SecurityManagerDemo extends SecurityManager {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // set the policy file as the system securuty policy
      System.setProperty("", "file:/C:/java.policy");

      // create a security manager
      SecurityManagerDemo sm = new SecurityManagerDemo();

      // set the system security manager

      // perform the check

      // print a message if we passed the check

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Exception in thread "main" access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermission queuePrintJob)
