Re: Java program under cygwin?
The GUI in linux (and in other Unixes) is provided via an X-Server.
An X-server provides a means for client programs (the Java app in
question) to "draw" on the display. I use the CygWin/X server all the
time to do just what you are wanting to do. Look at the second link
down on the cygwin home page ( http://www.cygwin.com/ ).

OK, then I guess I got something wrong:
I thought cygwin would help me run programs under Linux from a windows machine ...?
When running the same Java programme directly under the same Linux machine the program is working as expected.

Sorry, I am a complete newbie to all this! :-(
What is an X-Server?
