Hi,

on http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/ there are serveral sub chapters. Like Java 3D, Image I/O, etc. "Image I/O" for example found its way to the J2SE with 1.4.0, which is fine.

When you click on "Java 3D" there's no mention about OpenGL for Java, in short "Jogl". I think this is a pity, because surely people interested in Java and 3D will take a look there (I did) - and surely not all of them need the "Java3d" package.

Only with some luck I found to the Jogl project pages at Java/net/games. But I know there are many people who don't think OpenGL is a game's chapter only. So they will hardly look into the java/net/games project's pages. :-)

Some guys here work at SUN. Maybe they could, or maybe we could, try to convince the webmasters of the central Java-Media-pages to include a link to Jogl?

Or is it too early, yet?
However, please bear in mind that many projects leads have to take decissions with respect to a long term time shedule - so I don't think it's too early. The faster they learn about the fact that OpenGL is ready for Java, the better!

OpenGL has been used in Java for quite a while, a search on google would have found this (GL4Java, LWJGL), but I see what you mean.

I think the problem might be that Jogl (and other associated new libraries) arn't "core" libraries as yet. What's more they're community projects and not directly controlled by SUN. Putting them on the SUN web page might be a little in appropriate.

Maybe Jogl, Joal and JInput just need a lot more publicity, but its still early days.
