Using Transitions for Animation in Oracle’s JavaFX 2.0

A new article by Java Champion and JavaFX expert, Jim Weaver, titled “Using Transitions for Animation in Oracle’s JavaFX 2.0,” shows developers how to animate their nodes in scenes the easy way, using the JavaFX 2.0 TranslateTransition class. JavaFX comes with its own transition classes, whose purpose is to provide convenient ways to do commonly used animation tasks. The article shows how to use the TranslateTransition class to animate a node, moving it back and forth between two positions in the UI.

From the article:

“JavaFX 2.0 comes with several transition classes (that extend the Transition class) whose purpose is to animate visual nodes in your application. JavaFX also contains many builder classes that provide the ability to express a user interface in a declarative-style. In addition, JavaFX has a powerful property binding capability in which properties may be bound to expressions to automatically keep them updated.”
