Anyone have an example of a textured sphere?

I strongly encourage you to get a copy of "The Red Book."  No OpenGL programmer should be without it.  It's formal name is:

OpenGL Programming Guide: The Official Guide to Learning Opengl, Version 1.2 by Mason Woo, Jackie Neider, Tom Davis, OpenGL Architecture Review board, Paula Womack - Paperback - 800 pages 3rd edition (August 6, 1999) Addison-Wesley Pub Co; ISBN: 0201604582 hosts a free pdf copy of an older version at

In there you will find enough information to give yourself a solid foundation in OpenGL.  Converting the C examples into jogl is trivial, so don't let that bother you.  From there, you should be able to look at any OpenGL example and adapt it to your needs.

A few sites I'd recommend are:

Thank you for your help pointing me in the right direction, but I own all the OpenGL,Java3D books published.

But unfourtunately, each book does not tell the mathematical formulas to achieve this. It always tells theory, not practice.

I am rusty on my math, therefore making it difficult to match spherical coordinates to the (s,t) values for my texture.

You would think that some guru out there would post a simple solution to this, but I guess not.

But thanks for your help.
