On Java.net forums I once saw a post about adding methods like glColor
(java.awt.Color) to jogl. At the given thread I wanted to know about the latest
opinion regarding this feature is and had given the following example of why such a
feature should be usefull:
The current implementation needs the following code to get an AWT-Color-object
float rgb = color.getRGBComponents(null);
gl.glClearColor3f(rgb, rgb, rgb);
It would be possible to write a wrapper for such but it would speedup development
with jogl in conjunction with the JDK to have convenient methods ready. There
may be more situations like this.
I know that including such methods to the GL class might be a design break so one
could implement as a helper class/package similar to the SwingUtilities.

This won't be fixed in the core JOGL package. JOGL exposes pure OpenGL; wrapper
classes could be created to make it more convenient to use. The community would
have to contribute these utility classes.
