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.

I do have a 3D map to display.

Regards,
Thanks-in-Advance

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I second NetBeans :)

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