cannot open TSM GUI

I have configured TSM client dsmc works bur when i do dsmj i get the following error.

Exception in thread "main" java.awt.HeadlessException:
No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it.
at java.applet.Applet.<init>(Unknown Source)
at javax.swing.JApplet.<init>(Unknown Source)
at COM.ibm.storage.adsm.cadmin.clientgui.DDsmApplet.<init>(DDsmApplet.java:124)
at COM.ibm.storage.adsm.cadmin.clientgui.DDsmApplet.main(DDsmApplet.java:530)

I am not sure if this error is related to TSM or unix itself.

I tried in different ways in past two months, i wonder if anyone have/had got the same issue so that they can help me.

Thank You,

Xwindows is runnning. Please advice me if i have to check any other things
X windows might be running but the java support for it might not be right.

I don't have issues running TSM GUI on KDE, remote dekstop via VNC, etc. Make sure java is configured properly.
