Abstract:
The presentation of 3D contents on the Internet is doubtless very interesting and has much potential, especially if these worlds have high levels of interactivity. X3D is a new format that is going to be the standard for 3D contents distribution on the Internet, replacing VRML. Beyond the utilization of the conventional X3D, there is the possibility of integration with Java, an external programming language. In the scope of this project, was developed a prototype of a fantasy Role Playing Game, thus revealing the potential of the integration of X3D format and the Java programming language. The integration of these two technologies was possible through the programming interface SAI (Scene Access Interface) that showed a good outcome for it allows a considerable increase of the power of interactivity necessary for this type of applications.
