The Java 3D API enables the creation of three-dimensional graphics applications and Internet-based 3D applets. It provides high-level constructs for creating and manipulation 3D geometry and building the structures used in rendering that geometry. With this software, you can efficiently define and render very large virtual worlds.

This package contains the java library.

jinput is an implementation of an API for game controller discovery and polled input. It is part of a suite of open-source technologies initiated by the Game Technology Group at Sun Microsystems with intention of making the development of high performance games in Java a reality. The API itself is pure Java and presents a platform-neutral completely portable model of controller discovery and polling. It can handle arbitrary controllers and returns both human and machine understandable descriptions of the inputs available.

The JOGL project hosts the development version of the Java Bindings for OpenGL (JSR-231), and is designed to provide hardware-supported 3D graphics to applications written in Java. JOGL is not the official reference implementation of the JSR, but an evolving workspace; snapshots are taken from this workspace which become the official reference implementations of the JSR.

JOGL provides full access to the APIs in the OpenGL 1.3 - 3.0, 3.1 - 3.3,

= 4.0, ES 1.x and ES 2.x specification as well as nearly all vendor extensions. It integrates with the AWT and Swing widget sets, as well with custom windowing toolkits using the NativeWindow API. It is part of a suite of open-source technologies initiated by the Game Technology Group at Sun Microsystems.

The Lightweight Java Game Library (LWJGL) is a solution aimed directly at professional and amateur Java programmers alike to enable commercial quality games to be written in Java. LWJGL provides developers access to high performance crossplatform libraries such as OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) and OpenAL (Open Audio Library) allowing for state of the art 3D games and 3D sound. Additionally LWJGL provides access to controllers such as Gamepads, Steering wheel and Joysticks. All in a simple and straight forward API.

A large number of Java Image filters which are all standard Java BufferedImageOps and can be plugged directly into existing programs.

Many of these filters are useful in applications such as games where images need to be generated on the fly, or where it's quicker to generate them rather than downloading them. For instance, it's quicker to download one image and rotate it several times than to download several separate images.

Another use for the filters is in animation. For example animating the Water Ripple filter can produce a nice rippling effect. Some of the filters have a time parameter for this purpose.

All of the filters are designed to work with TYPE_INT_ARGB images.

More info and samples can be found in http://www.jhlabs.com/ip/filters/index.html

SVG Salamander — рушій SVG для Java, що намагається бути малим та швидким, і дозволяє програмістам використати його з мінімумом зусиль.

Він, зокрема, призначений для легкої інтеграції SVG у Java-ігри та набагато простішого використанням художниками при розробці двовимірного вмісту ігор, — від багатих інтерактивних меню до морських карт і від графіки до складної анімації.
