  • Excited for 2023!

    Java seems to have gained a second wind in recent years, and the innovation in this ecosystem is speeding up. Java 20 and LTS release 21 are expected to happen this year. RIFE2, an actively-developed pure-Java web framework, has recently caught my attention. Like Javalin, it appears to be built on top of the successful Jetty server. I also started exploring FXGL for building games with Java. Lastly, as concerns over COVID-19 variants wane I expect an increase in Java developers participating in community events. For example, Chicago finally had its first in-person JConf event and the Chicago Java User Group (CJUG) is easing back into in-person events.

    I can highly recommend FXGL https://github.com/AlmasB/FXGL to get started building simpler 2d games before looking into 3d engines which can be daunting unless that’s what you are in for. Nice and easy api’s with everything you need as well as lots of example games to learn from.

    Either libGDX (https://libgdx.com) or FXGL (http://almasb.github.io/FXGL/) . libGDX is more complicated and more powerful, FGXL is better suited for simpler games and so easier for beginners, but recently it's development is quite active and more and more features are available.

    Since your asking in r/javahelp , I believe you want to make a game in Java. The easiest way is to use a game engine and I can really recommend FXGL. You can find it here: https://github.com/AlmasB/FXGL together with information about how to use this library and a lot of example projects (from simple to advanced).

    Then you need a visualization engine. You could look at FxGL, which is versatile: https://github.com/AlmasB/FXGLI think the particule demo is quite close to what a graph viz would need: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhr1b4061os
