You probably can't run any Java GUI app from that terminal, right?
Normally DISPLAY is set automatically when you're connected to an X
server. Try something else you know works, like the Swing demo from the
JDK for example. I see this happen sometimes when you're running under
an 'su' or if you ssh without the -X parameter (though this can be set
in the config files instead, I think).  Are you on the console in an
xterm or similar (e.g. Konsole)? If you're connecting from a PC you need
to have a X server running on your PC. Cygwin has a free one (
http://x.cygwin.com/ ) or I used to use Reflection X before I switched
to a Linux desktop years ago.
