    Open Source COLLADA Converter

    I have created an Open Source COLLADA Converter:

    java or other on server?

    howdy from austin, croft..

    i think it would be handy, if this is to run in-browser, for the converter code to run on the server, and to use a simple html file upload form. since most server-side environments can execute arbitrary scripts / external programs, it ought to be possible to combine a wide array of converters in different languages into a single super-adapter-thing.

    alternately, it might be cool to have a gui java app which uses some cross-platform window library such that it can be executed native-ish-ly on pretty much any platform and convert files in any direction needed.

    it should even be possible for the same conversion and file-handling code to power both systems..

    .. i'd choose python over java, but to each his own .. ;d

    For this conversion utility, I am using the importers contributed to the Open Source Java project Xith, a scene graph renderer. Once it is in Xith format in memory as a scene graph, I then export it to COLLADA. Using Xith as the intermediary means I don't have to write my own importers but it does have the disadvantage of losing some information and restricting deployment options.
