Java3D + Newer Eclipse Version -> Access restriction
Current eclipse versions dont go well with java3d. Programs that worked fine before now produce 100s of strange errors, e.g. "Access restriction: The type SimpleUniverse is not accessible due to restriction on required library C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\ext\j3dutils.jar" etc. Java3D is installed correctly and everything was (and is) working perfectly well with older eclipse versions.
I googled for a solution and found out that switching
Windows -> Preferences -> Java -> Compiler -> Errors/Warnings -> Deprecated and restricted API -> Forbidden reference (access rules): -> change to warning / ignore indeed elminated the error(s).
Can anyone explain me what is going on here? Why is Java3D "Deprecated and restricted"? Is the default setting of eclipse correct or oversuspicious? Did I miss anything else? Will the next java3d / eclipse version be fix this? Do I have to fix this? Questions over Questions ...
