This week's book giveaways are in the iOS and Features new in Java 8 forums. We're giving away four copies each of Barcodes with iOS: Bringing together the digital and physical worlds and Core Java for the Impatient and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
I'm in the unfortunate position of being asked to help a remote-office coworker who is having problems with image generation on Solaris.
Our product currently runs on Linux, and it uses Xvfb as a frame buffer wherein we can dynamically generate images using Java. We run Xvfb like this:
Xvfb :30 -screen 0 640x480x8 -fp unix/:7100
My question is this: Other than using Xvfb, is there a way on Solaris to generate images, ESPECIALLY since this will be a server-side application with no video display available? I seem to recall that solaris has a built-in (read:native) frame buffer, but I don't have access to the box to poke around...
Hope this makes sense, hope someone has ideas!
Thanks in advance.

I hate to say "RTFM" but it took me twenty seconds to go to developer.sun.com and do a search, to find this article:
