    Default JAVA simulator

    Hi all,

    I would ask please about, how can I create a simulator using java, is there any tools can help in this area because usually simulators need more works with GUI. Therefore, anyone knows any library or tools can help.

    exactly ,

    I am going to simulate WFQ and PQ , which are router`s algorithms and show how packets arrive and departure from any router

    Thx

    what are you trying to simulate? If it's graphic/computationally intensive, more than likely you won't be able to do it in java with a decent run-time.

    I disagree, you can do really great graphics in Java.

    However like helloworld said, what kind of simulator are we talking about?

    You can get graphics to look good with java, but for the most part is limited to 2d (not completely). If you look at the nature of high-powered simulators, especially those that provide high fidelity (raytracing, high polygon models, particle systems, etc.), you need to interface with the graphics card, which just isn't possible with java if you want a decent running time and fidelity (as far as i know).

    But enough bickering

    That would be very possible in java (i think). You can definately create the queues as necessary and assign them to implement some interface that allows packets to be sent to them. Then, based on the requirements of the router algorithms, send them back out accordingly.

    As for existing tools, i think you might have to design your own gui, but a google search wouldn't hurt. From what i've heard, netbeans has a fairly good GUI designer.

    Indeed, should be possible to do that.

    Java offers bindings for OpenGL btw, I use those in my game making projects. There is definitely power in Java and 3D
