Hi.  I'm slowly figuring how to draw various "stuff" I need in my application.  This scratchpad app is used to test stuff.  Everything in the following code works but I cannot figure out how to draw a circle.  I'd appreciate some help.  I've tried the following calls with no luck.  Either I am using the wrong calls to draw an unfilled circle or I am missing additional calls to make them work. 


I want to draw the circle near the middle of the virtual coordinates (around 7500,7500).  Here is what I have that does work.

Thanx.  Andy


    public void init(GLAutoDrawable drawable) {
        // Use debug pipeline
        // drawable.setGL(new DebugGL(drawable.getGL()));
        GL gl = drawable.getGL();
        System.err.println("INIT GL IS: " + gl.getClass().getName());       
        gl.glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

    public void reshape(GLAutoDrawable drawable, int x, int y, int width, int height) {
        GL gl = drawable.getGL();
        gl.glViewport(0, 0, width, height);
    public void display(GLAutoDrawable drawable) {
        GL gl = drawable.getGL();
        GLU glu = new GLU();
        GLUT glut = new GLUT();       
        int font18 = GLUT.BITMAP_HELVETICA_18;
        int font10 = GLUT.BITMAP_HELVETICA_10;
        int font_a = GLUT.BITMAP_8_BY_13;
        // Draw Rectange
        gl.glColor3f(1, 0, 0);
        gl.glRecti(100, 100, 1500, 1500);
        // Draw Line
        // Draw Text
        gl.glColor3f(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);
        glut.glutBitmapString(font18, "TEST18");
        glut.glutBitmapString(font10, "TEST10");
        glut.glutBitmapString(font_a, "TEST_A");
        gl.glColor3f(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
    public void displayChanged(GLAutoDrawable drawable, boolean modeChanged, boolean deviceChanged) {

To draw a 2D circle you need to approximate it by a succession of small lines ( for loop with some sin and cos calls).
So a very little math and you'll have a circle.

And if your not up for the working out the math, this should work:
for (int t = 0; t < 2 Pi; t+= stepsize)
