You are right in this page if you are on the quest for one of the following:
- recent JOGL binary distribution download
- precompiled Windows Java OpenGL bindings
- you just can not find the place where to download JOGL 🙂
I had a couple of hours on my own recently and though it would be a good thing to catch up with the latest developments in the Java+OpenGL environment. So I looked for the download of JOGL (Java Bindings for OpenGL) just to realize, that I is actually quite difficult to find a recent binary distribution of JOGL!
Eventually, after a while I found it: http://jogamp.org/deployment/autobuilds/master/.
There you find an extensive list of directories containing builds, mostly for different binding projects such as gluegen, joal, etc. Search for “jogl” to jump to the JOGL builds.
The downloads are basically a list of (probably automated) builds. So I hope that this will be the place for the next months to get update-to-date JOGL binaries. The builds that have the suffix “-master” in their directory name appear to contain only documentation.
Please also note that for running JOGL you also need gluegen. I personally use the 2012-01-23 release at the moment. This is
which seem to work.
So the guys at JogAmp.org do actually provide precompiled binaries, they just make it difficult to find them. 🙂
Now that you downloaded JOGL, you may be interested in my JOGL Hello World example (includes how to set up the classpath and DLLs right).
Please leave a comment if it helps or my resource gets out of date.
