Hi,

i my project we are using jsf2 and primefaces for UI.(Java 1.6.17)

The official browser is IE but there is an option to use FF and Chrome so any solution should compatible with all 3 browsers.

Basically what I need to create is a simple 3D square that will be updated via the controller bean and will be view from the jsf.
I did some investigation about this subject and I can see that are few 3D API’s (Java3D,CSS 3D,Open GL,Java FX etc ..) but I am not sure what is the best and simple API that should fit to my requirements.

I was thinking to go with Java Applet which look to be more simple for me as a java developer and should work via 3 browsers.

I would like to get your recommendation according to yours private experience since I never did 3D development in

Thanks

At this point in time, applets aren't the answer, almost irrespective of what the question is. Many 3D libraries are available for Javascript; that's where you should start investigating. If the data model is on the server you'll need some client /server communication, but jQuery or something like it can handle that.

IMO, client - side Java is dead, certainly as part of a web app. JQuery is nota 3D library, but you can find those using the obvious search phrases.
