I working with a large control interface system written in Java running on Linux. What we want to do is to run some visualization + user interface controls written in C++ with OpenGL and compiled to a .so, and called from Java and displayed on a panel in the java program. We will also need user interface events past to the .so . We want to do this for a bunch of reasons that I don’t want to get into.
We are just starting this project and I am not too sure where to start? Has any one done this or something similar in the past? and where do you think we would be best to start?
