OSP 3D Eclipse Workspace
written by Dr Carlos Jara, Francisco Esquembre, and Wolfgang Christian
The OSP 3D Eclipse Workspace contains the source code and examples for the Simple 3D and Java 3D implementations of OSP 3D API.  The Simple 3D implementation uses only the standard Java distribution and will run on any Java-enabled computer. The Java 3D implementation improves the performance and the appearance of examples but the Java 3D library must be installed.  

Unlike the Simple 3D implementation, the Java 3D implementation uses GPU hardware acceleration to provide better intersection of surfaces and hidden-lines removal, as well as additional features such as textures and lighting. See Java 3D.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java, or at least version 1.5.2 of Java3D.
