Is it possible to run gui unit tests in a virtual X server?

Hi ranchers!
I am running Netbeans 7.2 in Ubuntu 12.04 AMD64 and I am unit testing a GUI with Jemmy.
I would like to know if there is a way to run those tests in a virtual X server, in the same way Jenkins runs its tests (through Xvfb).
Theoretically this should be possible, but I can't find a way to make it work. Any ideas on how to do this?
Thanks!
