How do I get my Java GUI to use a C++ library?

hi all,

looking for ideas on how to do this... we have a Java GUI that needs to be able to make some function calls to a C++ library. Any help would be appreciated!


93.58% of Batches have only a single vertex !?!

27 February 2012 - 06:36 AM

hello world,

gDEBugger Statistics and Redundant Function Calls Viewer reported to me that 93.58% of my batches have 1 vertex. I'm using OpenSceneGraph and I don't feel like diving into the OSG renderer source and rebuilding... Is there an easy way for gDEBugger to tell me what effect is causing this? E.g. can I just break on the draw that only has 1 vertex and look at the shader it is using? Thanks!

how to model navigation lights on ships at sea

08 February 2011 - 01:23 PM

I have a ship and for every navigation light there is a quad that is to be billboarded with the texture of the light sparkle (green, red, white, etc). I suppose I want the scaling of the quad to be a function of the "brightness" of the light, field of view, aspect ratio, and distance to the viewer... I'm not sure how this works IRL or what the best/proper way is to do this. how do I characterize these light billboards to make them look real? thanks in advance.

p.s. I can probably get away with implementing some kind of HDR but not tone mapping...

[web] what kind of machine should I buy for LAMP home web development?

26 January 2011 - 07:01 AM

I've been tinkering around with Magento on a Fedora 13 64bit virtual machine on my home computer (which is a beast IMHO) however the web pages are taking up to 10 seconds to load!! I understand that it is a computationally intensive application (especially running virtual) so I want to build and dedicate a machine to accommodate it. any recommendations on minimum specs for my new LAMP web development machine?
