Best 2d Graphics library? - Game development

Posted 02 June 2013 - 01:04 PM

Since Slick2d is no longer being maintained, I don't feel comfortable using it anymore. It will soon be deprecated. What have people been using in its absence? (Please don't move this to the game development thread. It's Java specific and will be better answered by the users of this forum)

This *is* a Game Development thread, so that forum is really where it belongs.

I think JOGL tends to be a fairly popular choice.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I was thinking something a little bit higher level, something that would allow me to prototype rapidly. Is this practical if I use JOGL?

SFML has a Java binding, they are not official but should work fine. You can find if over at sfml-dev.org. SFML is my favorite graphics library. I don't know how well the Java binding is as I never used it but the .Net bindings rock. SFML is also high level if that is what you are looking for.

Hope this helps.
