    OpenGL in Java

    Hi guys.

    I am thinking about doing a project with OpenGL in Java, but cannot find any books on this. All the books I can find give code examples in C, and recommend using C. However, I have no experience programming C, so I am beginning to wonder whether this is a good idea. If you have any thoughts on OpenGL in Java or know of any books on this and where to get them, please let me know.

    Thanks James

    Re: OpenGL in Java

    Hi !

    I don't know of any books but there are two good alternatives to use:

    gl4java (you find it on google)
    This is a thin layer on top of OpenGL

    Java3D (java.sun.com)
    This is a high level 3D api that works with both OpenGL and Direct3D (you don't need to change your own code, it works with both)
