I currently have a Java application that interacts with a web application.
The Java application is launched first and becomes a full screen application; then
chromium-browser is launched on top of it and also becomes a full screen application.
I would like to be able to switch back and forth between these two applications.
Is there a way to be able to go back and forth between making these applications visible / the top most using only X and not using a window manager? I don't have a lot of resources for running a typically full-featured window manager.

I've tried using
xdotools but you need a window manager for those. I keep getting errors such as
Your windowmanager claims not to support _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW, so the attempt to query the active window aborted. xdo_get_active_window reported an error
Cannot get client list properties. (_NET_CLIENT_LIST or _WIN_CLIENT_LIST)
