Did you fill in VisADLineStripArray.stripVertexCounts?  Like this:

  ((VisADLineStripArray) array).stripVertexCounts = new int[1];
  ((VisADLineStripArray) array).stripVertexCounts[0] = array.vertexCount;

If there is more than one strip in the array (i.e., lift the pen
between strips) then the values in stripVertexCounts should sum
to vertexCount.

Please let me know if this does not solve your problem.

Cheers,
Bill
