Running JavaFX headless without native dependencies

We're successfully running our full-blown JavaFX application on our build server to run automated performance tests.

Monocle is used as a renderer. Here are the relevant JVM arguments:

-Dprism.fontdir=" + jdk_path + "/jre/lib/fonts" 

The font dir stuff was required on our build server. I'm sure you need to tweak this to make it work :)

Kind regards,
