[vtkusers] 3D rendering with VTK from Java application

Hi VTK experts.

I am starting a development requiring some VTK-based 3D rendering from
within a Java desktop application, and in particular inside a panel
embedded into the GUI of this Java application.
This application will need to work at least on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.
Will using JOGL-based rendering components be the best option for my task?

Are JOGL-based rendering components reliable and robust enough with the
current version of VTK?

I made some JOGL-related tests with VTK some years ago (using VTK 6), but
at that time I ended up using vtkCanvas-derived rendering components in my
application (which required compatibility with Windows OS only), since
JOGL-based components had some issues (I do not recall exactly, but I seem
to remember there were issues related to the size of the viewport...).
So, I was wondering if JOGL-based rendering components are now more robust
and reliable with the current version of VTK, or if there are other
preferable options.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Best regards,

Marco Sambin
