Java Application Run on Java SE 5.0 Takes Extremely Long to Be Displayed on Remote Windows Xserver (Doc ID 1504233.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Java Platform, Standard Edition - Version 5.0 to 5.0 [Release 5.0]
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)

Symptoms

Remote display of a simple Java application on a Windows XP box using a ReflectionX Xserver is extremely slow.  It takes between sixty to ninety minutes for the application to display.
The application is run on Solaris 10 Update 9 using Java SE 5.0 Update 30.  For remote display, the DISPLAY variable is set to the Windows XP box.
Running the application on Java SE 5.0 Update 24 behaves in a similar way.  However, if the application is run on Java SE 6 Update 29, the remote display happens instantaneously.


The following demo application is used:

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

public class HelloWorldGUI {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( null, "Hello World!" );
  }
}

The following software versions are used:

SunOS 5.10 Generic_147441-05 i86pc i386 i86pc

$ java -version
