Hardware Acceleration In OpenGL

ok, i need some help with this, anything will work (reference material, book names, a gun,etc, etc)…
i have a ton of opengl tutorials and extra material but i need to know how to start programming opengl in java using my video hardware to render the images. i might be way over my head but… any help would be appreciated

He has good tutorials there. Some of them have ports to the Java language, especially the early ones.

Hope that helps
