You can use DirectX if you use the Java3D API.

Incredibly wrong. Java3D uses DirectX or OpenGL depending on the underlying OS and installer version, but you can''t access DX or GL commands at all - it''s an entirly different API sitting at a higher level (scene graph etc.).

You wouldn''t want to use the DX version of Java3D anyway because it lacks some of the features of the OpenGL version. Its listed somewhere in the Java3D docs.

Benefits using Java over C++:

- Better GUI, there are many available built-in functions.
- Can be web-based, so people can use/play over Internet
- Platform/OS independent
- More object-oriented (it might be a negative aspect for some)
