Hi

I almost finished my offline geocode library and have it run in a webserver for easy testing.

One of the thing the library can do is to plot a country/countries. For this it used the B4XCanvas etc, which needs FX...

However, I want to run this server also on a console only Ubuntu VPS. Is there any way to work with bitmaps, canvas etc on a non-desktop environment, so that the server could create an image on the-fly and serve it to the (web)client ?

I understood , while going through other forum posts, that this is impossible ?

Thanks

You shouldn't use jFX library in non-ui apps. One possible solution is to create a UI application and start it with jShell. The UI application doesn't really need to show anything.
