Hi friends,

Im using WebLogic 8.1 special Edition in Unix plaform.
In my project, there is a need to create charts using jfreechart jar file.
While creating the charts, it is giving exception like

cannot connect to X11 server using 0.0.

I tried setting DISPLAY variable with X11 server. After setting the DISPLAY variable, i have given the command xhost + to make the DISPLAY variable global.

Immediately its giving exception like

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Please log me out from this ISSUE.

Thanks in advance.

cheers<br /> <br />mohan.<br /> <br /><br />Always do what you are afraid to do...

There are 2 ways to handle this. One is to include a special headless X server and the other is to start Java with the headless option. Headless Java became available somewhere around the 1.4 release.

For WebLogic, your best bet is to check BEA's docs. They should have something on how to run headless.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
