Do we really need to write the code manually for Java3D Programs?

Isn't there any IDE (like NetBeans) for that?

Please tell me what is the best IDE for Java3D?

You can load Model Files from other file formats build in 3D modeling tools.. like 3DStudio.

I think it's the best way.

Not to be 'that guy', but stuff like this really annoys me. Why are you using Java3D if you are just going to do the smallest amount of code possible? If you want to make a game, etc. that doesn't require much coding, take a look at Blender or something. I am very much a purist when it comes to coding. I write or modify most software I use. I realize that it isn't always possible to do everything yourself and by hand, but saying something like "Do we really need to code to use Java3D?" is like asking "Do we need to code in order to code?" Sorry for being annoying, I'm sure I was ;). As I said before, these things annoy me.

Well, I don't know anything about Maya or 3DStudio software applications. But what I need now is a simple swing application, but there should be an animation running on the background (behind the buttons). I can made this animation by using Macromedia Flash (swf/flv); but I don't know how to put it to the background. Should I use Java3D for this? Please advice me, how to implement this.

In addition to that, I have to implement a small 3D Bar Chart running on the same window. I think I must use Java3D for this, am I correct? Or, can I use JavaFX instead?

Lastly, I don't yet know about either Java3D nor JavaFX. But I'm sure that I can learn it, if I need it for this project? Therefore please provide the advices simply, as I can understand

I didn't study Java3D so much.. and all i learn is from the book "Java Killer game programming Java 3D" (A great book).

And i think for all that you can use the Java3D.

Theres a project to run Flash under Swing applications but its license is ContributionWare.
Can be foud here: https://jflash.dev.java.net/

The book i tould can be found here:
http://fivedots.coe.psu.ac.th/~ad/jg/
The book has an online version with a lot of appendicies
.. so dont worry about copyright acessing this link.

If you have time i think you can study this book.

1. You require animation running in background. (u can use Gif file or a thread that displays jpgs in a sequencial loop)
2. "3d bar chart" >> A "3d" bar chart is never "3d", its just a bunch of shapes that give it a 3d look

As far as i see, all these can be acomplished with the Java 2d api easily.

I fail to see the need for further technologies here.

I suggest you to go through

This is a file in your java installation folder. just double click it
or run command


you will understand wht i mean
