We are happy to announce that we have a new Java 3D Web Start website :https://j3d-webstart.dev.java.net
Applications can now access Java 3D from this site using the Java Network Launching Protocol (JNLP), without requiring user's of the application to download and install Java 3D. Please check it out, your feedback and comment will be greatly appreciated.
Java 3D Team.
Note: We are aware of a caching issue that happens when a different java3d apps JNLP file is opened, web start will download java3d again rather than using the existing java3d from its cache. For example, using the 2 example programs we have posted, HelloUniverse and TickTockPicking. A user should only need a single java3d download to execute both programs.
We believe this problem is caused by the way java.net server is configured. We are currently working with the java.net folks to resolve this issue.
