I need some help creating a Linux system that will auto start a java application, but I need to have the most bare Linux possible.
So I wanted to use SLES11 due to some requirements we have, I want to not install a GDM/XDM just have X so the graphical application can load.
what would be the best way to go about this?

Well, does it offer a linux no GUI server option?
Then you can later add the java & X capabilities you need using the command line package manager.

You can try another distro that has less assumptions about the environment you want to use it on, like gentoo
that can start pretty bare bones if you want to.
