Right.... I''ve just started on Java (been programming C++, Delphi with OpenGL and SDL etc for ages). Now it''s java''s turn. I''ve been looking for the files to be able to use OpenGL in Java. So far I''ve come up with is GL4Java and Java3D. Now I need to know a few things : 1) GL4Java only works in Netscape right in Windows (bugger)? 2) Where can I find and download Java3D (and is it DirectX or OpenGL)?

... and Java3D comes with implementations for OpenGL and DirectX.

Make sure you get the OpenGL version as it''s more optimised and is more stable. See here for a little detail.

gl4java will run under any of the java2 plug-ins ( java 1.3.1 1.4.0 ) under netscape, ie, mozilla, galeon, .... gl4java will also run on linux and theoreticly under MAC ( 9 and OSX ).

Just to clarify, java3d is a scenegraph api sitting on top of opengl. You don''t actually make any opengl calls on your own.
