Why do you need DirectX? If you want to write a game, all you need is the ability to draw images, and that is supported very well by the Java2D api.

There are DirectX & OpenGL wrappers out there, so do a search on Google, and find them.

If you want an applet that uses a DirectX wrapper, you will have to sign the jar file. Look around at http://java.sun.com/ for information on that as well.

The VolatileImage class uses DirectDraw on Windows machines.

If you want a game that plays in a browser, ignore DirectX because it is a world of incompatibility.
