headless mode and linux

Hi All,

I heard that we can set -Djava.awt.headl ess=true in JDK 1.4. With this
setting, do I still need XServer on Linux machine if I am doing AWT
stuff ? Without XServer I am getting HeadlessExcepti on.

Thanks for any insight.

Don't you need a display to use awt stuff....by definition of the fact
that it is used for GUI programming? As long as you do not attempt to
use any "graphics" java will run "headless". But, if you are attempting
to run a GUI on a headless system, then I would suggest you download and
install xvfb (X virtual frame buffer):
