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.

In my case, I’m more comfortable with fixed function pipeline, I rarely use shaders.
Is this shader-based stuff what I need to learn? Search everywhere only in this topic.
My needs are rather simple. Here is what I looked at so far: I also want to plot texture-mapped surfaces of, say, brains, lungs, faces, and animate those a bit – respiring lungs, growing brains.
I should only have to rewrite those, if necessary, but I would rather get off on the right foot. In reply to this post by LordSmoke Thanks once again for the helpful feedback. Of course, I abstract my stuff so the data plotting layer calls isolated, underlying procedures plotSymbol symbolType, location that handle the details.
However, you should have a look at Jzy3D if you want to draw plots. I am picky about such things, but more lifelike, fog-shrouded, chrome teapots are not on my todo list. Gets some recommendations here in the past year. In reply to this post by LordSmoke. It probably takes lines of code to put a single triangle on screen. Then again, java3d seemed to serve my purposes just fine.
The main problems will be the real drop of the fixed function pipeline, i. 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.
But, hey, I might go wild and let the user pick a point and see ancillary information about it. 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.
Actually, if you want bool application to be largely supported, you will have to be comfortable both with the fixed function pipeline and the programmable pipeline.
Comprehensive Tutorial and Reference 5th Edition. But I’m a bit old school and think a hefty processed paper product is better to curl up with to assimilate the big picture.
We are at an important time in the history of computer graphics. I want to plot multivariate data with different symbols, axes, titles, legend, with user rotate, translate, and zoom. 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 jogk teach with those.
I understand your position, especially the last aspect.
jogl – Book recommendations?
Free forum by Nabble. How is a newb to filter all of this? Julien Gouesse Personal blog Website. Since I am starting from zero, I’d like to not be boook by deprecated approaches. Thanks once again for the helpful feedback. 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 jotl a poor blending of old and new programming models.
Looking into it today, I think I really don’t care at all about shaders. With respect to learning, I am worried about this statement in one of the threads: I’m going to try a different approach of factoring repeated code out into functions instead of objects, to see bok that makes the OpenGL parts clearer.
Lol we will worry about the paradigms for you if you use Java3D. 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.
JOGL Books/Resources (Game Development forum at Coderanch)
So, I could stick with that and let it worry about underlying paradigms, but I am thinking removing one less package dependency should be desirable. There are currently no scenegraph supporting both the backward compatible profile and the forward compatible profile. Yes, once I have my footing and start to write my own routines, I seldom refer vook a book – google is my friend.
