hi,

i've developed an web-base application which creates vertial title images in runtime with java.awt libaries. it works fine in windows
but it does not work in my sun solaris 10. i searched the error in web and found two solutions;
      first one: using -Djava.awt.headless=true in startup script but when i try i get this error;
                        ERROR 2007-09-19 12:09:54,527 com.zzz.dm.actions.ImageWriter - java.awt.HeadlessException
                        
      second one: using xwindow like this;                        
                        DISPLAY=localhost:10
                        export DISPLAY
                        but i get this error; (i think i set the wrong port, how can i get the xwindow port?)
                        <Jun 19, 2008 12:07:56 PM EEST> <Error> <HTTP> <BEA-101017> <[ServletContext(id=28914982,name=NewDMWEB,context-path=/NewDMWEB)] Root cause of ServletException.
                        java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using 'localhost:10' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.
                              at sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment.initDisplay(Native Method)
                              at sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment.<clinit>(X11GraphicsEnvironment.java:134)
                              at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method)
                              at java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:141)
                              at java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment(GraphicsEnvironment.java:62)
                              at java.awt.Font.initializeFont(Font.java:308)
                              at java.awt.Font.<init>(Font.java:344)

how can i run the application?

thanks in advance...

a) Using "headless" means that you do not have any graphical display at all
b) To use an X11 display you must
    - Have an X11 display server up and runing (X11 started on some workstation)
      This could be a local X11 display on your Solaris workstation or any other
       display somewhere on the network.
    - The environment variable $DISPLAY must be set to point to this very display
       If you have a local display (on your Solaris 10 workstation) it will usually be
       set to something like
           :0.0
       or
           localhost:0.0
       You may verify this right after starting an xterm (or some other shell window)
       and entering
           echo $DISPLAY
       If you have a remote X11 display, it would be set to something like
           hostname:0.0
       or to
           localhost:10.0    (or simply localhost:10)
       when you logged in to your Solaris 10 box via ssh with X11 tunneling enabled.
       When using cygwin as the X11 display (server), you must (!) omit the .0 at the
       end.

To verify if you can use the DISPLAY variable as it is set right now,
try to open some X11 application like
    xterm -ls -sl &
( or, if your PATH is not set:
    /usr/openwin/bin/xterm -ls -sl &
) or
    xclock -update 1 &

when you got an term opened, check the DISPLAY variable
    echo $DISPLAY
Now, try to start another X11 program (like xterm, xclock etc.)
and see if it gets displayed on your screen.

X11 usually listens on ports 5000 and above
