comment In Java swing, while handling a 2D top down game, how should I handle scaling for quality transformations (mainly screen rotation)
Why do you want to draw to a pixel array first? I think you need to provide some pictures to clarify what you are really after.

You should use Java2D transformations for rotating and scaling images. This way you get both quality and performance in an easy way.

Try setting your texture filter to Linear.

comment trouble getting the lighting and material set up right
The specular looks correct in the left sphere. Perhaps there is something wrong with the geometry of the other object, e.g. normals are incorrect. Check if there is any different when using glEnable(GL_NORMALIZE);

comment (Java) Trying to animate an arraylist of coins with a (working) animation class
If draw() is overridden for Coin class, why does it check if (type == ObjectType.COIN)? It's hard to say how your Animator class should interact with Coin as you didn't give any details of the Animator class.

comment Flipped model has wrong triangle order
As far as I know the options are either to do it this way or create a copy of the index buffer with reversed vertex order. If you are rendering reflections, you only need to change the winding order one time if you render all reflected models at once.

comment How to implement accurate frame-rate-independent physics?
The linked question and answers explain that using fixed time step is really the way to solve your problems.

comment Physics-based rotation with an array of pixels
For reference, I have created a simple physics simulation with the above method. Video at youtube.com/watch?v=CXEqf5zPSsk. I also believe that the game Gish uses this method successfully.
