Where to start?

Where is a good place to start learning about Wonderland? What sort of docs exist, for example, describing its architecture, some tutorials on how to load content, extend Wonderland, etc? Or is it a "plow through the source code" stage? Or is it "stop posting these annoying forum messages and maybe we'll have time to write docs"? (understandable, if so, my apologies). As a side question: is there any functional relationship between Looking Glass and Wonderland? Does the latter use the former as a technology base? (which implies I should go read those docs first).

Thanks very much, Jordan

HI Jordan,

There is some javadoc and a few short architectual descriptions in the wiki http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Javadesktop/ProjectWonderland. Don't get your hopes up though it's fairly limited docs at this stage.

Your best bet is to read the little that is there and then start asking questions here.

Project Wonderland is based on Project Looking Glass, but depending on what you want to do you may not need any of the Project Looking Glass api's (we use them internally mostly). The one thing we don't have working yet is the ability to run lg3d apps in wonderland, I'm in the middle of a major lg3d refactor that should enable this, but it's going to take a while.

Cheers

PAul
