Could any one can tell me where can I find mobile 3D's source code or tutorial on the Internet?
Thanks a lot

Forum Nokia has a Mobile 3D Graphics tutorial with example source code. It's in the Resources/Documents/Java section. There's also an interesting-looking document called "Guidelines for Exporting M3G Files" - I've not used the API, but that document looks like it would be very useful if I did.

I've scanned over the Nokia document to determine the 3d API - and it seems as though it's mainly scene-graph based - which I'm not too found of.  There is an immediate mode though - would I be correct in thinking that I could use the same methodologies as when I'm designing a JOGL app in immeadiate mode.  Is m3d immediate mode like JOGL but for the mobile?  Are there any other popular 3d Mobile API implementations out at the moment?  I would obviously prefer to use java for the normal reasons, but would appeciate any language as long as I can code in a similar fashion to JOGL. - design agency focused on mobile - online vintage eyewear store

Thanks for the link kbateman.  I think what I was searching for was JSR 239 - - a java binding to native openGL ES calls.  I guess I'll have to stick with JSR184 for now though.  :/ - design agency focused on mobile - online vintage eyewear store

I was chatting with a succesful professional MIDP game developer last week, and he said that M3G (JSR-184) was preferable to OpenGL ES, as it was more high-level and hence reduced the amount of code in the MIDlet; also there is a significant overhead in each call from Java to native, so you really want to reduce the number of calls if you can. That's also what I hear from Nokia's own 3D guys - there are good reasons why M3G is not just like OpenGL ES.

Sure - but you are at the mercy of M3G, for better or for worse...
