Computer Graphics Programming in OpenGL with Java

Book Description

This book is appropriate for both the science undergraduate course in using OpenGL and for professionals who are interested in mastering graphics skills. It has been designed in a 4-color, “teach-yourself” format with numerous examples that the reader can run just as presented. The book is unique because it teaches OpenGL programming in , using JOGL – a standard “wrapper” for OpenGL’s native C calls. Includes companion files with source code and images.


  • Covers OpenGL 4.0+ shader programming using Java.
  • Includes companion files with code, images from the book, and more
  • Illustrates every technique with complete running code examples. Everything needed to install JOGL and run every example is provided.
  • Includes every GLSL programmable pipeline stage (vertex, tessellation, geometry, and fragment) -- with examples.
  • Underlying OpenGL C calls are always exposed – the reader learns them.
