Hi!

I wondered if it is possible to use OpenGL in Java. If yes, is there any good book, which uses Java for coding?

Thanks a lot,
Markus

You can easily get opengl in Java, I tried (for half an hour) but didn't succeed, however if you know java well it should be easy. I did find several good websites and java portings of opengl but I don't know their URL's now but search for some it shouldn't be to hard.

as of Java 1.3 you may also use your native opengl code (written in C) via the native AWT interface

see

java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/guide/AWT_Native_Interface.html

also look up jogl and magician on this site

also there was recently a news article about java and open gl on this site try looking up former news on the homepage of this site
