JOGL: A Beginner's Guide and Tutorial  By Kevin Conroy

 

Windows Installation Instructions

NOTE: The following links go to the latest versions of these binary files contained in the "Release Builds 2003 " folder on the JOGL precompiled binaries download page. I recommend that you visit that site to ensure that newer versions of these files have not been released since this tutorial was written.

  1. Download the JOGL Windows binaries ("jogl-win32.zip"). I also recommend that you download the JavaDocs ("javadoc_public.tar.gz") and the JOGL demos ("jogl-demos.tar.gz").
  2. Using your favorite archive decompressor, unzip jogl-win32.zip.
  3. Locate the Java SDK or JRE installation on your machine. These can typically be found at "C:\" or "C:\Program Files\Java\". NOTE: You may have several SDKs/JREs installed on your machine so make sure that you locate the one that your compiler/IDE is using. To be safe you can always install it for each version on your system.
  4. Copy "jogl.dll" into the "\bin" directory for the Java SDK or JRE installed on your machine (i.e. C:\[jre_location]\bin\jogl.dll).
  5. Copy "jogl.gar" into the "\lib\ext" directory for the Java SDK or JRE installed on your machine (i.e. C:\[jre_location]\lib\ext\jogl.jar).
