Pinned topic Using OpenGL on AIX with Java swing

‏2010-09-29T10:46:06Z |
Hi All,

I have I've got a powerpc box running AIX version 6.1

I have the recommended java version which is

JRE 1.6.0 IBM J9 2.4 AIX ppc-32 jvmap3260sr8-20100401_55940 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
J9VM - 20100401_055940
JIT - r9_20100401_15339
GC - 20100308_AA

I'm running a swing intensive application such as SwingSet2 or Swingset3 (available at least from sun jdk) and I'm getting horrible performance (up to 30 times worse than the windows implementation), so I'm trying to force the swing app to use opengl by using the following switch. -Dsun.java2d.opengl=True but when I do I get the following message in my output line.
"Could not enable OpenGL pipeline (GLX 1.3 not available)"

My question is, has anyone made this work, is it possible? Has anyone has success boosting the performance of swing on AIX?

Thanks.
