Now high end 3D graphics programming is available to the large community of Java programmers. Java Bindings for OpenGL (JOGL) brings the traditional OpenGL libraries to Java programmers. All the power of OpenGL can be accessed from a Java environment. Learning Java Bindings for OpenGL (JOGL) is a book for beginners. Whether you are new to Java or just new to JOGL this book is designed to allow an easy learning curve. The book is filled with example code. Many books on OpenGL or 3D programming start with a chapter that is easy to follow and quickly progress to topics too advanced for beginners. This results in much frustration for new programmers. This book is for beginners, from cover to cover! Inside you'll find introductory information on GLCanvas objects, animations, drawing geometric primitives, matrices, first person 3D movement, lighting, textures and much, much more. This is all presented at a reasonable pace for beginning JOGL programmers.
