this is actually kind of nasty, as you can't instantiate JFrame's in a headless environment, and will require some refactoring.

Revisit for 1.3 and decide if this is worth pursuing. The headless issue IS thorny.

I just did a local test on my laptop using Xvfb (X11 virtual frame buffer) to launch HazardCurveApplication? in a headless (ssh without X forwarding) environment. I have requested that John Yu install it on, which will allow me to enable a nightly app launching test.

still desired, still tricky

I added a new nightly test on (via cruise control) which will launch each of our apps on an Xvfb virtual screen. Seems to be working well, and should help us to keep the apps in working condition.
