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 and javax.vecmath. I did find a
ViewPlatform class (not ViewingPlatform) in a different package
(, 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I gather that the Tutorial is so grossly outdated as to be completely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?
