as the title explains; I’m after a decent tutorial or a book on JOGL (Java binding for OpenGL). Can anyone recommend one? Obviously, a free, online tutorial. Java binding for OpenGL (JOGL) is an open source library for binding OpenGL All the content and graphics published in this e-book are the property of. just got a link to this free ebook: Foundations of 3D Graphics Programming: Using JOGL and Java3D. Author(s): Jim X. Chen, Chunyang Chen.

How is a boik to filter all of this? There is a new RedBook coming out in July that might address the criticisms of the current version confounding programming modelsbut I have a project on which I need to start much sooner. Then again, java3d seemed to serve my purposes just fine.
Julien Gouesse Personal blog Website. With respect to learning, I am worried about this statement in one of the threads: Here is what I looked at so far: I’m going to try a different approach of factoring repeated code out into functions instead of objects, to see if that makes the OpenGL parts clearer.
Thanks once again for the helpful feedback. Gets some recommendations here in the past year. We are at an important time in the history of computer graphics.
It probably takes lines of code to put a single triangle on screen. Since I am starting from zero, I’d like to not be confused by deprecated approaches. I understand your position, especially the last aspect. Yes, once I have my footing and start to write my own routines, I seldom refer to a book – google is my friend. This book contains a lot of useful info, but I noticed the same thing — the author builds up a set of wrapper objects that make it hard to see the OpenGL clearly. I want to plot multivariate data with different symbols, axes, titles, legend, with user rotate, translate, and zoom.
First of all, thanks to everyone who has been so helpful and responsive in the past week or so in getting me up and running. I think this is part of why it’s hard to teach shader-based OpenGL effectively; in the process of building up a program, it’s very hard not to factor stuff out into new wrapper objects, and once you do, it’s hard to teach with those.
I should only have to rewrite those, if necessary, but I would rather get off on the right foot. There are currently no scenegraph supporting both the backward compatible profile and the forward compatible profile.
Of course, I abstract my stuff so the data plotting layer calls isolated, underlying procedures plotSymbol symbolType, location that handle the details. Lol we will worry about the paradigms for you if you use Java3D.
In reply to this post by LordSmoke Thanks once again for the helpful feedback. The main problems will be the real drop of the fixed function pipeline, i.
In my case, I’m more comfortable with fixed function pipeline, I rarely use shaders. My needs are rather simple. I am picky about such things, but more lifelike, fog-shrouded, chrome teapots are not on my todo list.

Comprehensive Tutorial and Reference 5th Edition. Search everywhere only in this topic. Free forum by Nabble. So, I could stick with that and let it worry about underlying paradigms, but I am thinking removing one less package dependency iogl be desirable.
Looking into it today, I think I really don’t care at all about shaders.
However, you should have a look at Jzy3D if you want to draw plots. However, like the online tutorials, actual books on learning OpenGL are all over the place – publications spanning more than ten years, and more recent, supposedly up-to-date, offerings criticized for a poor blending of old and new programming models.

Actually, if you want your application to be largely supported, you will have to be comfortable both with the fixed function pipeline and the programmable pipeline.
In reply to this post by LordSmoke. But, hey, I might go wild and let the user pick a point and see ancillary bpok about it. I also want jgol plot texture-mapped surfaces of, say, brains, lungs, faces, and animate those a bit – respiring lungs, growing brains.
