Project Scene Graph

Sun Microsystems just released Project Scene Graph, a scene graph API for Java 2D and Swing. This API makes it very easy to write complex drawings or visual effects. It also lets you blend Swing component with regular Java 2D objects, with as little effort as possible. The web site contains early binaries and sources as well as a nice introduction PDF that Chet Haase presented at JavaPolis 2007.

    Looks like a promising project, too bad the license is GPL with NO classpath exception :-(

  4. Kurt says:

    Are you planning to publish the src of the really cool iPhone-like demo? :-)

    Ask Sun, I do not work on this project :)

    iPhone-like demo? Where?
    Romain, I’ve been playing around with Android for a few days now and I’m waaaaaaaaaaiting for the first devices!

    Regarding the license, on JGO, Dmitri says that they’ll stick the classpath exception back in as soon as possible.

    The phone demo was just iCandy for the live presentation. The Nodes demo (available in source and binary on the scenegraph project site) is a better demo for actually running and looking at the code. I could see cleaning up the phone demo eventually and releasing something similar, but I wouldn’t post the demo in its current state.
