Wolfram Research says it no longer supports JavaGraphics in Mathmatica 10. This is very bad for people who prefer the Kernel to the FrontEnd.

However, I am still able to get it to work.

Show failed. However, this works:

show[x__] := Show[x, DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction ]

Also, ErrorListPlot fails, but this works:

errorListPlot[x__] := show [ ErrorListPlot[x] ]

I put these definitions in my init.m file.

Sorry this isn't a question ... more of a tip.

  • $\begingroup$ 1. JavaGraphics works fine for me in version 10, including Show. 2. Why do you believe the command line to be superior to the notebook interface? Unless you are using a slow Raspberry Pi, I don't see what you would gain, but you certainly do lose a lot. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Feb 18 '15 at 15:38
  • $\begingroup$ Can you give more information about your setup so we can figure out why JavaGraphics doesn't work for you? What is your OS, what precise version of Mathematica are you using? How did you try to show the graphics precisely? I have Mathematica 10.0.2 on OS X and in a fresh kernel I did Needs["JavaGraphics`"]; Show@Graphics[Circle[]]. This shows a window with a circle. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Feb 18 '15 at 17:22
