java.awt.HeadlessException Applet not displayed
I am using Tomcat 5.5.23, JDK 1.5 on HP Unix. We have an application which when invoked form tomcat starts an applet. It was working fine till JDK 1.4. But now we have moved to JDK 1.5 and the applet does not start. The exception thrown is -
No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it.
I then added JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true" to catalina.sh file. But still I get the same Headless exception, but this time without the X11 Display message.
Any help would be appreciated.
