By now, you should be able to understand what the GeoServer print community module is and how it can be used within your own applications and projects. It is a very capable print server that can generate exceptional output that really does your maps justice.

The layout configuration is straightforward enough to make it easy to create interesting output that is still powerful enough to enable the creation of interesting and compelling layouts. We saw how the simple REST API of the print server can be used to understand the capabilities of the print server and make requests for prints.

Finally, we saw how all the concepts can be brought together into an application using the OpenLayers map library that can make dynamic print requests through an interactive print-extent feature on the map.

In the next chapter, we will take a look at how we can use our GeoServer instance in a real-world scenario and integrate it into an enterprise platform.
