Programming 3D Graphics with OpenGL


In this chapter, we will talk about working with the OpenGL graphics API on the Android Platform. Specifically, we’ll break down the topic into three sections. First, we’ll provide an overview of OpenGL, OpenGL for Embedded Systems (OpenGL ES), and some competing standards. Second, we will explain the theory behind OpenGL and cover some of the essential OpenGL ES APIs. In the third and final section, we will give you the necessary code to build a test harness that you can use to exercise the APIs covered in the second section.
