Displaying graphics in a JSP

I am trying to display some graphics in a JSP.
I have tried using a JPEGImageEncoder to convert from Graphics2D into a JPEG, but I get the error: "Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable"
Other questions on the forum have suggested installing X-windows on my pc, but the app I'm writing runs on unix and is to be used by many users - I can't install X-windows on all of their pc's.
Does anyone know how to get round this?
Or does anyone know a better way of displaying graphics in a JSP/Servlet.
Thanks
Tim

Hi Tim,
I ran into this problem running Orion on Solaris, I believe that you _only_ have to install x-windows on the server, _not_ all the client PCs.

[...]
I am remembering more now.
I think you can also set the DISPLAY env var to go to a UNIX machine that _has_ x-windows installed (if you have one laying around) and that will work as well.
Later.

"Thanks Rob."
No problem.
"Do I need to do this in catalina.sh?"
That sounds reasonable.
Later.

Hi tim,
I tried this on windows and it works fine.(I got the same error on linux. I think if you have Xwindows running on the server this will work. I couldn't try this since I do not have a monitor attached to my linux box and I can't try the easy way of running a xserver (i.e. xwindows)). What I want to know why do you need to do this?I cant think of much use for this. Could you reply?

Sanpra,
Thanks for the advice. I am trying it now...
I want to display some graphs and charts in a JSP. If you know a better way of doing it rather than converting into JPEG and embedding within the HTML, then please let me know.
Thanks
Tim

I use Xvfb to supply the X server. This allows the java applications to run without a display (actually Xvfb creates a buffer for the display).
