How I can load a VRML node into Java3D? Where can I find a VRML Loader and how do I use it?

You have a couple options. First, I would suggest that you visit the "J3D File Loader Archives" at:

The Xj3D Loader from Web3D.org will likely meet your needs. Link to it from the archive (above), or directly at:

Xj3D source is at:

More information on the working group responsible for Xj3D is at:

You might also check out the NCSA's "Portfolio", as it includes a VRML (.wrl file) Java 3D Loader. It is available from the archive, or directly from:

Each of these loaders is well documented, so once you have a copy you shouldn't have any problems using them.
