Class Matrix4f

java.lang.Object
  extended by net.rim.device.api.math.Matrix4f

public class Matrix4f
extends Object

Defines a 4 x 4 floating point matrix representing a 3D transformation.

Vectors are treated as columns, resulting in a matrix that is represented as follows, where x, y and z are the translation components of the matrix:

   1  0  0  x
   0  1  0  y
   0  0  1  z
   0  0  0  1
 

This matrix class is directly compatible with OpenGL since its elements are laid out in memory exactly as they are expected by OpenGL. The matrix uses column-major format such that array indices increase down column first.

Since matrix multiplication is not commutative, multiplication must be done in the correct order when combining transformations. Suppose we have a translation matrix T and a rotation matrix R. To first rotate an object around the origin and then translate it, you would multiply the two matrices as TR. Likewise, to first translate the object and then rotate it you would do RT. So generally, matrices must be multiplied in the reverse order in which you want the transformations to take place (this also applies to the scale, rotate, and translate methods below; these methods are convenience methods for post-multiplying by a matrix representing a scale, rotation, or translation).

Passing a matrix to OpenGL is a simple and efficient operation since the underlying array for the matrix is stored in a format that is directly compatible with OpenGL.

   // Create a matrix to translate by (10, 2, -20)
   Matrix4f translation = new Matrix4f();
   translation.set(1, 0, 0, 10,
                   0, 1, 0, 2,
                   0, 0, 1, -20,
                   0, 0, 0, 1 );
   
   // Pass our matrix to OpenGL
   gl.glLoadMatrixf(translation.getArray());

Note: In the case of repeated local transformations (i.e. rotate around the Z-axis by 0.76 radians, then translate by 2.1 along the X-axis, then ...), it is better to use Transform3D (which is optimized for that kind of usage).
