1.) I want to run a Java program on a linux device. It might be a Raspberry Pi, still I'm interested in a more generell solution of my problem, if possible.
2.) This Java program makes use of 3D-graphics. But I don't own any source.
3.) I want to run this program on a low-end machine, but it's not required to "see" the program. The machine will be remote-controlled.
As far as I know when using only the java.awt.* package, a thread called the Event-Dispatching-Thread get's started and every call of the AWT-library is managed by this thread which himself hands those requests to the underlaying operating system.
Since AWT is only a small part of the JFC. What is beneath the Swing components etc. and does the "work"?
Is there a way to make the operating system ignore any of those requests to save system ressources e.g. RAM, CPU, energy consumption?
Edit: I don't like my title, any improvements highly appreciated.
Edit2: With ignore I mean that the operating system just doesn't do any calculations, but without letting the program know about it.
