Well I am taking java and am not liking it... What can I do with java to make it more interesting... Is it possible for me to make games on java... it is similar to C++ but also not the same... I need some motivation... the things that I can do with this language, its exe. is slower than C++ is it that much of a difference. P.S. They stopped teaching C last semester and started teaching Java++ this semester and now I am stuck with this

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)

Yes, you can make games with java. Check out my site for two applet games with source:

Can java be made into a game? One word, Runescape. Most of you who know runescape may say it sucks, but hey, can you do better? They have their own 3D engine, they''ve built a fairly big world and they are going to upgrade their graphics. Even though I don''t really like how the graphics look, not a crisp as if you were to make it for o let''s say windows, but it''s JAVA. I''m not saying java is bad or anything, but I think you have more options in C++ since you don''t have to worry about what type of connection does the user have. There''s also more choices I think.
