Comprehensive and definitive, this is the essential reference for Java programmers building multi-platform and Internet 3D applications with the latest version of the Java 3D API. The Java 3D API Specification, Second Edition covers the new Java 3D API in unprecedented depth, going beyond the "raw" spec to provide practical insight for sophisticated developers, straight from Sun Microsystems' Java 3D experts. Start by understanding Java 3D's goals, programming paradigm, object hierarchy, program structure, and performance features. Next, master the basics of creating, rendering, and manipulating 3D geometry, including working with Java 3D scene graphs; using key components such as group node and leaf node objects; reusing scene graphs, and more. The CD, new to this edition, contains numerous examples, demos, and source code.
Henry Sowizral, a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, is the chief architect of the Java 3D API. He is an expert in virtual reality, large-model visualization, and distributed systems. He is co-inventor of the Time Warp simulation methodology. Kevin Rushforth, a Senior Staff Engineer at Sun Microsystems, is a co-architect of the Java 3D API. He has worked extensively in graphics hardware simulation, microcode, and graphics pipeline software. He is expert in such APIs as PHIGS+, XGL, and OpenGL, and such hardware devices as the Ultra Creator3D. Michael Deering is a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, where he has led the company's 3D graphics technical strategy. He is a co-architect of the Java 3D API and was the chief architect for a number of Sun's 3D graphics hardware accelerators. He is an expert in virtual reality. 0201710412AB04062001
As a reference book, it's very frustrating and difficult to use, because so much of the API has changed.
As an overview book, it contains some good information, but not much.
I'm not really happy with this book on either count.
