CS293 Graphics, Lab 1, Setting up Netbeans and Simple

Use a web browser (preferably Firefox or Opera) to open the web page for the course:
Follow the instructions in the section on 'Lab Exercises' to download these files:




Unzip JOGL files and Chang Path environment variable
Unzip the contents of the jogl-1_0_0-windows-i586.zip file to a folder of your choosing. For

example you may end up with a folder H:\JOGL\jogl-1_0_0-windows-i586\lib. Check that it

contains the files:




Change the Path evnvironment variable so that it includes this new folder. Right click on the My

Computer icon on the desktop of your machine and select properties.
Next choose advanced and environment variables. If there is no user defined Path variable then

choose new. Otherwise choose edit for Path. Add a semi-colon ';' to the end of the string and then

type in the name of the folder you have placed jogl.jar etc. In the above case I would add:
'; H:\JOGL\jogl-1_0_0-windows-i586\lib'
to the end of the already defined Path.
Testing your JOGL installation
Unzip the TeaPots.zip file to a folder of your choice. This should contain the file

TeaPotMapping.jar, and a folder lib containing another copy of the jogl.jar file. Do not move this

second copy of jogl.jar or the example will not work.
If your machine has suitable Java file associations you should now be able to double click the

TeaPotMapping.jar file to execute it. Otherwise start a Cygwin command shell (or windows

command shell if you prefer) and cd to the folder containing TeaPotMapping.jar. This command

should now execute the file:
java -jar TeaPotMapping.jar
At this point you should see a JFrame containing falling teapots rather like this one:
Creating a NetBeans Project With a JOGL library
These instructions are correct for NetBeans 5.0. I assume they will be more or less the same for

whichever version of NetBeans comes after this.
First create a new project SimpleLab001, which is a Java application within NetBeans. Choose

Simple as the main class. Suppose that you have chosen to make you're SimpleLab001 project

live in the H:\JOGL\SimpleLab001 folder. In that case replace the existing Simple.java file in the

H:\JOGL\SimpleLab001\src\simplelab001 folder with the one you downloaded from the course

web site earlier.
If you open the Simple.java file in NetBeans you

should see various error messages throughout the file.

This is because NetBeans does not know where to

find the JOGL library routines.
Right click on the project name in the navigator view

and select

Click on libraries and choose Add Library:
A list of existing libraries will now appear. Choose the manage libraries option in order to create

a new library containing the JOGL jar file. Click on New Library and give the new library the

Click OK. Next select JOGL from the possible libraries and click on Add Jar/Folder:
Navigate to the lib folder where you have unpacked the jogl-1_0_0-windows-i586.zip. In the

example here that is the H:\JOGL\jogl-1_0_0-windows-i586\lib folder. Select jogl.jar and click

Add Jar/Folder.
Now select add library to incorporate the JOGL library classes into the SimpleLab001 project.

Once you click on OK and return to the Simple.java file it should, after a short pause, be error

free. Clean, build and run the project and you should see a JFrame like this:
First Exercise for Simple.java
First unzip the jogl-1_0_0-docs.zip file somewhere convenient. Such as the JOGL folder you

created earlier. Open the index.html file. Find the glGetString method for the
class. Find in

the Simple.java code where this is used.
Download the RedBook PDF file from the web site given in the course notes. Search for the

section 'Which Version Am I Using?'.
Define String objects that store the values of GL_VENDOR, GL_RENDERER,

Using the HelloWorldSwing.java as a guide, create a new JFrame within the init() method of the

Simple class, which dispays the values you have just defined. Thus when you execute your

application you should now have two JFrames, rather like this:
It is almost certain that the values you obtain for your machine will be different from those

shown here.
Second Exercise
Add a new line
immediately before the gl.glBegin(GL.GL_POLYGON) statement. What difference does this

Search for GL_LINE_LOOP in the redbook. What happens if you try some of the alternatives

given in the redbook in Table 2-2?
In Java we can define the angle 2
as 2*Math.PI. Also if we want to define the (x,y) coordinates

of a point on a circle that is 'angle' degrees counterclockwise from the x axis this is given by the

equation: ((float)Math.cos(angle), (float)Math.sin(angle)). Where we have defined the values as

floating point numbers.
Instead of drawing a square as in the first part of the lab. Change the code so that it now draws

an octahedron. That is an eight sided closed polygon, where each side is the same length. Note

this could be drawn by working out eight points on a circle that are equally far apart. If they are

equally far apart then the angle between the radial lines of two consecutive such points will be

The result should look something like this:
Third Exercise
Change the reshape method to this:
public void reshape(GLAutoDrawable drawable, int x, int y, int width,
int height)
GL gl = drawable.getGL( );
GLU glu = new GLU();
gl.glViewport(0, 0, width, height);
gl.glLoadIdentity ();
glu.gluPerspective(30.0, 1.0, -1.0, 2.0);
gl.glMatrixMode (GL.GL_MODELVIEW);
Then change the display to this
public void display(GLAutoDrawable drawable)
GL gl = drawable.getGL( );
GLU glu = new GLU();

/* throw this in just to illustrate using FloatBuffer type for
defining a vertex */
FloatBuffer vec0 = FloatBuffer.wrap( new float[] {0.5f, -0.5f});

gl.glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
gl.glColor3f(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f);

glu.gluLookAt (0.0f, 0.0f, 3.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);
gl.glVertex2f(-0.5f, -0.5f);
gl.glVertex2f(-0.5f, 0.5f);
gl.glVertex2f(0.5f, 0.5f);
Look up the
method in the redbook. Now try some different values for this method

and see what happens.
Fourth Exercise
Next change the display method to this:

public void display(GLAutoDrawable drawable)
GL gl = drawable.getGL( );
GLU glu = new GLU();
GLUT glut = new GLUT();
FloatBuffer vec0 = FloatBuffer.wrap( new float[] {0.5f, -0.5f});
gl.glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
gl.glColor3f(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f);

glu.gluLookAt (0.0f, 0.0f, 3.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);
What happens now, and what happens when you change the parameters for gluLookAt again?
