I need to load 3D images from a database and place them on a webpage for the user to interact with (simple pan/zooom/rotate).

It is my understanding that either Cult3D or Macromedia's Shockwave/Flash plugin will help me out in this area.

Assuming that I get the file converted to what either of these needs (not an issue), and am able to load it up from the database and create an output stream of that image (not an issue) how can I go about building a web page using a servlet to use either of these two plugins?

I think this is possible using just the plugins as I have seen this done before, but all I get from their web sites is "Use our products" instead of sticking with straight J2EE.

So, has anyone done this and would you provide me an example of what yoiur servlet looked like?
