Java or Opengl ???

OpenGL is a C library, and a pretty complicated one. I don't think it is class based for C++ yet. Someone may have written a class interface for it for C++, I think soemone has written a wrapper for .NET and there might be one for Java, but I'm not positive. The Java 3D class is probably written on top of OpenGL and would have a much easier learning curve than going down a level and writing code in C or C++ with OpenGL. It's just a project, not the latest killer game written in super-hi res and high fps, so don't kill yourself, do it in Java with their 3D and 2D classes. In fact, the built in Graphics class might be all you need, and it's real easy to use.
