Ok, here's the story:

I have a web application which uses LWJGL (opengl for java) to create images which i then stream to some remote client. This web-app runs on jetty web container. All is well if i run jetty as standalone application (using startup bat). Images get generated, everybody's happy. But then i decided it would be nice if i could run jetty as an automatic-startup windows service. So i installed the jetty-service and then run it, just to find out that now i can not generate images anymore. This is due to the fact that services fall into 'session 0' and they are not allowed to use display devices...

So the question is; how can i generate images using OpenGL if i'm running this app under windows service?
