Alright, so I'm trying to rotate a model, and I got front and back down:
 Back:
1  
2  
3  
4  
ReadOnlyMatrix3 tempM3 = new Matrix3(1,0,0,
                                     0,1,0,
                                     0,0,-1);
         colladaNode.setRotation(tempM3);


Front:

1  
2  
3  
4  
ReadOnlyMatrix3 tempM3 = new Matrix3(1,0,0,
                                     0,1,0,
                                     0,0,1);
         colladaNode.setRotation(tempM3);


But when I tried to do the sides:

1  
2  
3  
4  
ReadOnlyMatrix3 tempM3 = new Matrix3(1,0,0,
                                     0,1,0,
                                     0,0,-0.5);
         colladaNode.setRotation(tempM3);


or

1  
2  
3  
4  
ReadOnlyMatrix3 tempM3 = new Matrix3(1,0,0,
                                     0,1,0,
                                     0,0, 0.5);
         colladaNode.setRotation(tempM3);


it doesn't seem to work. my model still faces back or front.

Any idea why?

Google rotation matrices http://lmgtfy.com/?q=rotation+matrices, or look at the available methods in the ReadOnlyMatrix3f class (it probably has utility functions mentioning euler angles or something like that).

In brief, your first matrix is flips the z-axis, which resembles a rotation but isn't really.  Your second matrix is the identity, so it's not doing anything, and your other ones are not valid rotation matrices, they are scaling the z coordinate and flipping its sign.
