Here is a tough one. How do you go about displaying 3D images?

I have a JSF application (built using Java Studio Creator...nice tool BTW) that needs to have 3D images displayed.


User interaction (pan/zoom/rotate) with these would be great but if they just spun around on one axis I could live with that for now.

My question is, how do I go about integrating 3D in a JSF app?

Do any 3D components exist that work with JSF apps?

Anyone using 3D in their JSF apps?

Thanks!

Not gonna happen. You would need to embed an applet in your web app to get even close and getting 3D to work in an applet is a challenge all on its own. Your only other option is to embed Flash/Shockwave for the 3D stuff.

You know, there is a limitation on what webapps are supposed to do. That's why we have desktop applications also.

I can live with that! Would just need to redirect to a page that uses flash to load an object assuming that you can pass a 3D object at runtime (not statically bound at design time) to the Flash loader.
