hi flipcoders,

i've done a complex java-applet driven project recently. after all cycles of optimization and internal code shuffeling i think it's still to slow.
so i think about alternatives. the good thing about java is - its the same coding for all types of browsers/systems.

so one idea would be to create a type of browser-plugin (like quicktime etc.). but the basic coding would be different for all the browsers/sytems out there.

is there someone who has heard about a framework, which provides me with an interface to a "plugin-canvas/view/..." to do the coding on top ?

or some other ideas to start with ?

the coding will be strong 2d/3d related stuff with lots of texture/image data (panorama-rendering).

another idea would be java-3d. does someone have some experience with that ?

thanks alot, i'm only thinking aloud... ;)

What about the Java version of tinyptc:

Never used it myself, but I've seen applets using it, and it looks good.
