I am trying to learn the Java 3D API using the tutorial offered at
Sun's site
but I am finding that the information in this tutorial is *completely*
at odds with the 3D API documentation at
For example, on p. 1-12 the tutorial refers to the method
setNominalViewingTransform() of the ViewingPlatform class of the
com.sun.j3d.utils.universe package. I can't find any of these items
at the 3D API documentation site above. The only packages listed at
this site are javax.media.j3d and javax.vecmath. I did find a
ViewPlatform class (not ViewingPlatform) in a different package
(javax.media.j3d), and it doesn't have the method
I gather that the Tutorial is so grossly outdated as to be completely
useless. Is this impression correct? If so, is there any other way
to learn the 3D API?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
