3D game questions.
I am going to go ahead and create a 3D game in Java that doesn't have a big engine (No contacts you just fly around). But I don't know if I should use SWT or AWT, or something else.
Could you please give me some links and recommendations on which to use. :D: I would be happy.
I have eclipse BTW.
Yes I am new :-)
LWJGL (Lightweight Java Game Library) is a good game library for 3D: http://lwjgl.org/
Killer Game Programming in Java is a good book on java game programming: Killer Game Programming in Java - O'Reilly Media
JGO (java-gaming.org) is a good Java forum that is dedicated to game development: Java-Gaming.org - home of the largest java game developer community
Since your new to Java, you may want to start out with a 2D game to help you learn the language and what not. So here are some good 2D tutorials if you want them, you can also find others by googling "java game tutorial" or something like that.

I plan to make a 2D first but this is my goal
