Getting started with JOGL (OpenGL bindings for Java) in Eclipse

We will do the solar panel texturing the “classic way”. GLAutoDrawable ; 3 import com.

This is necessary to shine in all directions, but if you want to know why, ask another tutorial. Try experimenting if you like. Separating the Titorial and Container Classes Alternatively, you could separate the renderer Component and the top-level Container into two classes: Since we will be tinkering with the default position, a backup is useful; after we are done drawing, we will restore it via glPopMatrix.

A Tutorial on JOGL with Nehe JOGL Port

Nehe’s Lesson 1 “Setting Up”: Refer to Nehe for the problem descriptions. We covered basic structures like triangles, tutoril and spheres in three dimensional space; directional lighting and material properties; and textures, which we all like so much.

This also demonstrates nicely how to use multiple textures. We will spend all our time here.

Yet Another Tutorial on JOGL 2.1

GLCanvas inherits from java. Again, go to the display method and replace the triangle section at the end: You can get the source codes ” Gears.

The profiles are beyond the scope of this tutorial. You can retrieve the graphics context from a drawable as follow:. You do this by issuing primitive commands: Specify the javadoc’s archive file either zip or jar in “Javadoc in archive” if you use a zip file. Jol perform animation, we need an animator to drive the drawable’s display method in a loop to refresh the display regularly.

After all, we specified only a blue color, and no lights or shadows, so where should the “3D effect” come from? And that is it! A little more lines here. This is important to OpenGL when calculating light effects see below. Nehe’s Lesson 3 “Color”: Since this is the last chapter, I will now load even more stuff on your brain: Tutofial do I use Jogl”. Seen from the south pole, and that is because GLU always paints at 0, 0, 0 and along the z-axis; and we are looking along the z-axis into the monitor.

Everything in between depends on the geometry. You are also recommended to download the ” javadocs ” jogl-javadoc. Having a triangle is nice and all and this is actually the basis of almost all games out therebut how about some more sophisticated shapes?

It is the most important method. In order to enable the OpenGL 4. To use AWT’s Frame as the top-level window, modify the main method as follows: Now that we have finished writing the light sources, it is time to specify how the material reacts to titorial light across the RGB spectrum: Repeat the above procedure and create tutorail new environment variable named PATHor, if this is already present, select Edit instead of New.


Choose “Validate”, which search for an ” index. There are several events tutoril you listen for when you implement GLEventListener. Setting Up Download Source Codes: Set the camera position and direction, looking at a triangle. If you run the above code, you should see a nice black window, OpenGL uses black as the default color for clearing the color buffer.

For the purposes of this tutorial we will use only the display and the init methods. Expand the ” jogl. Upper left, upper right, lower right and lower left for both front and back face.

With that, lets start doing a bit 3D! A texture is what brings a form truly alive, by adding a pattern that our human eyes like so much. Source is needed only if you are interested to debug into the JOGL source codes.

OpenGL mother site www. The commonly-used constructors are: Download the latest “stable” release from JogAMP http: Nehe’s Lesson 2 “Basic Shape”: In the init method,we load the texture: This is needed for Eclipse to display javadoc information about classes and methods.

GLCanvas ; 7 import javax. An OpenGL drawable is a surface or canvas for graphics rendering. The result looks like the following:
