      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Current Windows 10, JDK 1.8.0_162, might be 32 or 64bit, forgot to ask.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      It is Bug JDK-8039412, but it still occures in 1.8.0_162, so the fixed message for 8u161 cannot be correct.

      I work around this by setting the printer like this:

                  // Fix for #113140 - java.lang.StackOverflowError - Should be fixed in Java 9
                  // See https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8133737
                  if( printerJob.getPrintService() == null ) {
                      try {
                          printerJob.setPrintService(PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService());
                      } catch( PrinterException e ) {
                          // Okay, stuff gets persistent here. We just try to set ANY PrintService here.
                       PrintService[] printServices = PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(null, null);
                          for( PrintService printService : printServices ) {
                              try {
                                  printerJob.setPrintService(printService);
                                  break;
                              } catch( PrinterException e2 ) {
                              }
                          };
                      }
                  }
                  if( printerJob.getPrintService() == null ) {
                   // Still no print service in printJob. This will lead to an exception later when we want to display
                   // the print dialog so we can just throw the towel here.
                      throw new UserException("Keine brauchbaren Drucker auf Ihrem System gefunden.");
                  }

      The reason why printerJob.setPrintService(PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService()); did not work was because the system complains about an "invalid printer name". The default printer was the "Send to OneNote 2010" printer, also after I switched the default printer on my customers system. Anyway, I just slap another printer onto the printjob until it does not complain anymore and now I can print again at my customer.

      I have the slight feeling that something like my code should be in the JDK itself, where the printerjob is created, but I don't know about the side effects.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Have a system where PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService() returne the "Send to OneNote 2010" printer. Don't know how to set this up.

      Try to to create a PrinterJob:

                  PrinterJob printerJob = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob();

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      printerJob.getPrintService() != null
      ACTUAL -
      printerJob.getPrintService() == null

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      See description.

      FREQUENCY : rarely
