Hi, I'm a Mac developer who's interesting in using Java to make 3D games available for both Macs and PCs. I'm somewhat confused as to why DirectX has been chosen over OpenGL since DirectX does not work on Linux nor the Mac. Will there be a mac version of Java 3D in the near future?

Not to seem contrary, but J3D is more of an OpenGL beast than 'tis a
Direct3D one.

Check here for binary downloads:
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/java3dandjavaadvancedimaging...

or try and build (port?) your own via CVS using the current OpenGL framework.

Best,

Matt

A Mac version of Java3D does exist. I've been told it's available from
the apple.com website, though I've never downloaded it. You may want to
try a web search to track it down.
