Downloading and Setting Up LWJGL
Here are the first steps that are required for any IDE.
Note: X.X denotes the version number of LWJGL that you are downloading.
- Create a dedicated folder for LWJGL and remember its location. This folder will be the permanent residence of LWJGL on your system. Optionally, name it "lwjgl-X.X" to denote it from earlier/later versions.
- Download LWJGL from here.
- lwjgl-X.X.zip is the only one required.
- (Recommended.) Download lwjgl-docs-X.X.zip if you want to be able to see LWJGL's Javadoc within NetBeans.
- (Recommended.) Download lwjgl-source-X.X.zip if you want to be able to navigate to LWJGL's source code within NetBeans.
- (Optional.) Download lwjgl_applet-X.X.zip if you want to be able to create Java Applets with LWJGL. This exceeds the scope of this tutorial; for more information, please go to the LWJGL Applet tutorials.
- Extract lwjgl-X.X.zip and lwjgl-source-X.X.zip. lwjgl-docs-X.X.zip does not need to be extracted.
