Plan is to create a stand-alone Java program that displays 3d terrain. Please let me know IDE tools and APIs that I can download for free of cost. I have some exposure to Java programming but have been mostly on web-programming, developing JSPs. I guess I need Java 3D library.

1. IDEs and URL from where I can download:

I do have a 3D map to display.

Regards,
Thanks-in-Advance

Hi Thanks-in-advance,
You can use net beans IDE, http://netbeans.org and you can download Java 3D API from http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/3D/download.html, the same page also has an implementation documentation

Cheers!

I second NetBeans :)

For 3d libraries, apart from the ones that Sun provides, you might as well check the following links:
