Animation in Java

  1. Jun 29, 2011 #1
    I am a novice programmer and I need to create an Animation using Java. Basically, this animation needs to consist of moving ellipses on a graph. Does anyone have suggestions as to the easiest way to go about doing this? I've been looking into using java.awt and javax.swing to draw the graphics in a JPanel and hopefully move them. It doesn't seem to be working out well.

    I've read about Applets and I understand that they are used along with a web browser. On the system I'm working on I have no access to the web.

    Please, any suggestions would be very helpful!
