How do I write OpenGL code that displays 3D objects (like Cubes) in which I can pick one or more objects and drag them to change their position?  I would prefer this solution to be in Java & SWT.  Code in C++ is also ok.

NeHe has great OpenGL tutorials which include drawing a cube (these are easily adapted to JoGL):

And for picking objects, see

(To get the mouse_x and mouse_y coordinates, just add an AWT mouse listener to your canvas)
