GLM+ print request functionality



I have a customer with requirements similar to what is delivered in EHP7 (print requests and logging functionality).

The customer is not too keen to use this new functionality provided in EHP7 due to the fact that none of their consultants has worked with this before.

Instead they plan to build a background job collecting all labels that is needed for all their process order and print them in the background. To me this is not a great approach because instead of using new SAP technology they create the same functionality by them self and that is not supported by SAP.

Does anyone have any experience of the print request functionality in EHP7?

I have set up everything on the SAP side so I have a rather good understanding of how it works but what I lack is the knowledge of how the WWI server works for printing.

We use the WWI server for the creation of labels today but what is needed to be able to also print from it? I have read about the WWI DMS requirement but how much work is that to set that up? Will that effect the sites that already has gone live? (This is one concern that the customer have). Would it be better to install a separate WWI server for printing?
