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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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:
