This new edition provides step-by-step instruction on modern 3D graphics shader programming in OpenGL, along with its theoretical foundations. It is appropriate both for computer science undergraduate graphics programming courses in degree programs that emphasize Java, and for professionals interested in mastering 3D graphics skills who prefer Java. It has been designed in a 4-color, “teach-yourself” format with numerous examples that the reader can run just as presented. New sections have been added covering soft shadows, performance optimization, Nsight debugging, as well as updated industry-standard libraries and steps for running the examples on a Macintosh. Includes companion DVD with source code, models, textures, etc. used in the book. Features: • Includes new sections on implementing soft shadows, performance optimization, and updated tools and libraries such as the JOML math library and Nvidia’s Nsight. • Covers modern OpenGL 4.0+ shader programming in Java, using Windows or Mac. • Illustrates every technique with complete running code examples. Everything needed to install JOGL and run every example is provided and fully explained. • Includes step-by-step instruction for every GLSL programmable pipeline stage (vertex, tessellation, geometry, and fragment) -- with examples.

This book provides step-by-step instruction on modern 3D graphics shader programming in OpenGL with C++, along with its theoretical foundations. It is appropriate both for computer science graphics courses and for professionals interested in mastering 3D graphics skills. It has been designed in a 4-color, “teach-yourself” format with numerous examples and detailed explanations. Every shader stage is explored, starting with the basics of modeling, lighting, textures, etc., up through advanced techniques such as tessellation, soft shadows, and generating realistic materials and environments. The book includes companion files with all of the source code, models, textures, skyboxes and normal maps used in the book. Features: Covers modern OpenGL 4.0+ shader programming in C++, with instructions for both PC/Windows and Macintosh. Illustrates every technique with running code examples. Everything needed to install the libraries, and complete source code for each example is provided and fully explained. Includes step-by-step instruction for using each GLSL programmable pipeline stage (vertex, tessellation, geometry, and fragment). Explores practical examples for modeling, lighting and shadows (including soft shadows), terrain, and 3D materials such as wood and marble. Explains how to optimize code for performance, and use modern development tools such as the NVIDIA® NsightTM debugger. Includes companion files with all of the code, object models, figures, textures, skyboxes and skydomes, height and normal maps used throughout the book.

The Ninth International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies, Ada- Europe 2004, took place in Palma, Spain, June 14–18, 2004. It was sponsored by Ada-Europe, the European federation of national Ada societies, and Ada- Spain, in cooperation with ACM SIGAda. It was organized by members of the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB). As in past years, the conference comprised a three-day technical program, during which the papers contained in these proceedings were presented, along with vendor presentations. The technical program was bracketed by two tutorial days, when the attendees had the opportunity to catch up on a variety of topics related to the ?eld, at both introductory and advanced levels. Furthermore, the conference was accompanied by an exhibition where vendors presented their products for supporting reliable-software development. Invited Speakers Theconferencepresentedfourdistinguishedspeakers,whodeliveredstate-of-t- art information on topics of great importance, both for now and for the future of software engineering: – S.
