Print to a label printer directly

Hello all,
I’m wondering what would be the best method to print to a label printer?
I
need to print many labels from a rails application, and I need to do it
on a
windows box (until we get a linux server up and running). It’s been
horrid
so far, the printer doesn’t seem to want to respond to commands like
system(“print /d:\name\printer file_to_print”) or even the command
itself
run in the command line (applications like notepad print out their
contents
fine, though). Is there a better way?

Java has a pretty good set of printing APIs that I have use in the
past for everything from PDF to plain text. Perhaps you could use
JRuby to do it?
