Package Basic.Networking

package Basic.Networking

This directory includes several experiments with X3D Networking.

Long-running efforts have attempted to define and build a new NetworkSensor node for X3D. Although useful design progress was made by the X3D working group, this work did not reach closure because author-written implementations did not appear to be possible using X3D prototypes encapsulating sandbox-restricted JavaScript network access from within an HTML browser. Further implementation and evaluation work might someday be pursued using an X3D browser implementation.

Examples of additional networking techniques for X3D can also be added to this archive. Of related interest: the Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) examples in this archive, which include native X3D support for the IEEE Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) networking-protocol standard.

This X3D Basic: Networking examples archive is online.

The X3D Java Scene Access Interface (x3djsail) package provides concrete classes for each X3D node and statement.

Online: X3D Java Scene Access Interface Library (X3DJSAIL) and X3DJSAIL Javadoc
