Disconnect from X11 session, not shutting it down

Hello,

1. I'd like to start an X11 session remotely (XServer on Win32, connecting to the Linux box)
2. Launch a GUI application
3. Disconnect the session, without stopping the application and the possibility to pick up the session, so I see the GUI of the application again

One possibility would be to use VNC, but is there another, kind of inbuilt, possibility to achieve it?

Thanks a lot.

QTCCK, I'd say the better is to use VNC on Linux.

Or you may use SunRay software on Linux. Or even better install Solaris instead of Linux and use SunRay software.
Once started, sessions never loose even if you disconnect your PC.

Usually you need to have sanray terminal device, but also you may use virtual java-based desktop with this product: http://www.sun.com/software/products/sgd/index.jsp

Sorry for the delay, but a very high workload at the moment... after thorough decision I went for VNC. Thanks, guys.
