Running JavaFX headless without native dependencies

thanks for all your hints, but my problem is not to start JavaFX in headless mode with Monocle. I need to start JavaFX without loading any native libraries (e.g. dylibs). But even the software renderer uses native code…

So I suppose currently there is no prism/monocle implementation which does not uses any native libraries…

Kind Regals,
