Jogl OS X Port is Nigh :)

Since the mouse features were to easy to add and my Android vacation should take a bit longer, our OS X port was a good candidate to burn some hours I don’t have.

What should work for OS X by now:

  • NEWT Top-Level Windowing
  • NEWT Child Window w/ NEWT Parent
  • NEWT Child Window w/ AWT Parent
  • JOGL incl. shared context
  • NEWT works w/ AWT enabled JVM out of the box
  • Method to execute a Runnable on the MainThread
  • The new native Jar loading facility (Application, Applet, Webstart)

JogAmp Deployment Enhancements: Automatic loading of native JARs (Applet/Application)

Currently implemented in modules GlueGen and JOGL. TODO: JOAL and JOCL.

Oracle Gives up on Java3D (and JOGL) for RIA (Webstart and Applets)

So after we have received quite some emails (some ignore) and even a bugreport about JOGL 1.1.1, which is no more working online and no more developed since .. errrrNovember 2009, Oracle finally made a statement deeply hidden in their support section.

Well, don’t worry, we are still up and running.

JOGL Website Updates & Docs

Beautified the JOGL Test Applet page and replaced the applet-tag with a object-embed mixed one.

Added a little a NEWT Overview writeup.

.. and fixed the html code a bit.

This just reminds me about previous code changes in regards to the Gears ES1 | ES2 test code.
Their common VBO code[v2.0-rc3] uses interleaved arrays,
which is now possible with our managed VBO util GLArrayDataServer.
