Synopses & Reviews
With the release of Java 1.4 from Sun Microsystems, for the first time it has become a reality that professional games can be developed in Java. Previous to the release of Java 1.4, Java game development was limited because of limitations with handling 3D graphics, animation, video, and sound.
Java 1.4 changes the limitations of using the language as a game development environment. Most importantly Java 3D, included with Java 1.4, allows direct access to Microsoft's Direct 3D (part of DirectX) as well as OpenGL. Java 1.4 Game Programming assumes no previous programming knowledge and covers all of the key elements in Java which are required for creating games, as well as significant new features which have become available with the release of the latest version 1.4 from Sun.
Java 1.4 Game Programming covers a number of key features in the game development environment, including graphics, sound, input, networking, and databases.
