The program in this tutorial displays an empty OpenGL windowand wait for you to press ESC or close the Window to exit.

This is the Java port of the one of the NeHe OpenGL tutorials.

You can get complete IntelliJ IDEA project structure (all source, resources, build script, …) by downloading the source distribution from here.
