What also is very interesting is headless testing. Let me see if I'm getting this.

Normally Jenkins would start a VNC server (xvnc), which provides some kind of graphics API against which an UI program can paint. JavaFX is not picking that up however.
But, as I read it, in this case JavaFX starts its own VNC server, so it takes of everything itself. All one would need to do is specify the

	-Dglass.platform=Monocle -Dmonocle.platform=VNC -Dprism.order=sw

And additionally a port to run the VNC server on (so multiple Jenkins jobs don't interfere).

Am I correct? How can I test this (aka in which version is the VNC server available)?
