java.awt.HeadlessException is a runtime exception thrown when java program tries to interact with AWT (abstract window toolkit) while running in an environment without graphical display.
A headless exception can occur in a thread main if the AWT API is used in an environment without a display, keyboard or mouse. This can happen when the program runs in an xserver environment.
Steps to Solve
- Check the system requirements of your program. Is there really the need to use AWT API? If the answer is yes, proceed to step 2.
- Configure your environment to allow graphical display and input. This needs to be done before you run the program again.
- Check for your code for any references made to AWT API and make sure that's correct. For example, check for the correct import statements or use of tools.
- If a few lines of code needed to be removed, repeat step 2 and 3 again.
- Try running the program again. If you still face an error, look up the Java API documentation for help on this specific error.
