Hi Adam,
VMWare is not officially supported but as my test shows, only DirectX
rendering does not work. If you do not have high workload for graphics in
your application you can force software rendering by starting your
application like this:
java -Dprism.order=es2,j2d -jar app.jar
(This tries out rendering engines in this order and leads to sw-rendering
on windows and OpenGL on mac and linux)
or if you package your app with the javapackager you can add this line to
