NASA and Java

I found this amazing project: NASA World Wind, showing maps taken by satellites in a great little Java application based upon JOGL.

I first struggled a bit with JOGL, getting the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: 
no jogl in java.library.path

I tried setting the -Djava.library.path, putting the .so libraries in the $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext, etc., to no avail. So I tried my luck and just put them in $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/i386, with the other native libraries. And it worked. Oh, well, sometimes, just a bit of inspiration…
