How to begin creating 3D (Game-) GUIs for Android Applications (e.g. with OpenGL)?
I am new to Android Development. What I want is to know how I have to begin thinking to program a neat, GUI. I guess the android.opengl API is a good starting point.
Let’s say we want to create something like a simplified 3D-Pool-Billard-Game: You see the table from the top and you have on the table the balls. You want to make them realistic (shadow, gloss).
Questions on my mind are:
- What kind of Graphics do I need?
- How to begin coding?
- What kind of classes do I need? For each element (ball, table, ..)?
- Where to create and encapsulate the “3D-ness”?
If you know better/additional questions, just add them or/and let me know in which direction I have to think in this case of developing.
My skills/background on Java: I’ve programmed a lot in Java EE and used to handle graphical output with JSP/JSF. So this mobile SE for Android is new to me. Hope to get some intersting stuff together for a smooth access.

I’d recomend using a existing 3d engine, else your in for a lot of work.
