If that test above (and others) require a GUI session you'll probably have to create one over VNC; I don't see how java web start would help (unless it provides a VNC channel). I cannot check right now (Bradley's "macports" VM is unreachable), but IIRC Qt5 applications can be started over a separate SSH connection regardless of whether the user's GUI session is actually connected to anything.
If the CI machine (another one of Bradley's VMs, no?) only serves for this, you could consider letting the CI user auto-login after boot, that way the session ought to be available always.
