'Headless' operation refers to the ability to run a Java program without a
monitor, mouse or keyboard. In unix environments, it usually means that X
or an equivalent windowing system does not have to be present.
Headless Java operation would mean that a server side Java program should be
able to use the full J2SE or J2EE API without a GUI environment being present.
This means that all AWT calls to manipulate components, graphics, fonts,
printing etc. should be functional.

Run an X server just to satisfy getGraphics()
You can also get Xvfb (a virtual frame buffer Xserver) from x.org's X11R6
This is tied to work on headless AWT.
This is the RFE number I will use to track headless, and close out all others as duplicates.
I am correcting spelling and grammar.
This feature is complete. No further updates should be made to this evaluation.
If additional functionality is requested, or if bugs are encountered, a new
bug report should be filed.
A brief description of this feature may be found at:
Please note that headless specifies that all heavyweight components throw
HeadlessException in headless mode. That includes JWindow, JFrame, and
JDialog, since these are heavyweight components. The javadoc specifies
this, as well as any other methods or constructors that may throw
HeadlessException in headless mode.
