public class AffineTransform extends Object implements Cloneable, Serializable
AffineTransform
class represents a 2D affine transform
that performs a linear mapping from 2D coordinates to other 2D
coordinates that preserves the "straightness" and
"parallelness" of lines. Affine transformations can be constructed
using sequences of translations, scales, flips, rotations, and shears.
Such a coordinate transformation can be represented by a 3 row by
3 column matrix with an implied last row of [ 0 0 1 ]. This matrix
transforms source coordinates (x,y)
into
destination coordinates (x',y')
by considering
them to be a column vector and multiplying the coordinate vector
by the matrix according to the following process:
[ x'] [ m00 m01 m02 ] [ x ] [ m00x + m01y + m02 ] [ y'] = [ m10 m11 m12 ] [ y ] = [ m10x + m11y + m12 ] [ 1 ] [ 0 0 1 ] [ 1 ] [ 1 ]
In some variations of the rotate
methods in the
AffineTransform
class, a doubleprecision argument
specifies the angle of rotation in radians.
These methods have special handling for rotations of approximately
90 degrees (including multiples such as 180, 270, and 360 degrees),
so that the common case of quadrant rotation is handled more
efficiently.
This special handling can cause angles very close to multiples of
90 degrees to be treated as if they were exact multiples of
90 degrees.
For small multiples of 90 degrees the range of angles treated
as a quadrant rotation is approximately 0.00000121 degrees wide.
This section explains why such special care is needed and how
it is implemented.
Since 90 degrees is represented as PI/2
in radians,
and since PI is a transcendental (and therefore irrational) number,
it is not possible to exactly represent a multiple of 90 degrees as
an exact double precision value measured in radians.
As a result it is theoretically impossible to describe quadrant
rotations (90, 180, 270 or 360 degrees) using these values.
Double precision floating point values can get very close to
nonzero multiples of PI/2
but never close enough
for the sine or cosine to be exactly 0.0, 1.0 or 1.0.
The implementations of Math.sin()
and
Math.cos()
correspondingly never return 0.0
for any case other than Math.sin(0.0)
.
These same implementations do, however, return exactly 1.0 and
1.0 for some range of numbers around each multiple of 90
degrees since the correct answer is so close to 1.0 or 1.0 that
the double precision significand cannot represent the difference
as accurately as it can for numbers that are near 0.0.
The net result of these issues is that if the
Math.sin()
and Math.cos()
methods
are used to directly generate the values for the matrix modifications
during these radianbased rotation operations then the resulting
transform is never strictly classifiable as a quadrant rotation
even for a simple case like rotate(Math.PI/2.0)
,
due to minor variations in the matrix caused by the non0.0 values
obtained for the sine and cosine.
If these transforms are not classified as quadrant rotations then
subsequent code which attempts to optimize further operations based
upon the type of the transform will be relegated to its most general
implementation.
Because quadrant rotations are fairly common,
this class should handle these cases reasonably quickly, both in
applying the rotations to the transform and in applying the resulting
transform to the coordinates.
To facilitate this optimal handling, the methods which take an angle
of rotation measured in radians attempt to detect angles that are
intended to be quadrant rotations and treat them as such.
These methods therefore treat an angle theta as a quadrant
rotation if either Math.sin(theta)
or
Math.cos(theta)
returns exactly 1.0 or 1.0.
As a rule of thumb, this property holds true for a range of
approximately 0.0000000211 radians (or 0.00000121 degrees) around
small multiples of Math.PI/2.0
.

If the determinant is nonzero, then this transform is
invertible and the various methods that depend on the inverse
transform do not need to throw a
NoninvertibleTransformException
.
If the determinant is zero then this transform can not be
inverted since the transform maps all input coordinates onto
a line or a point.
If the determinant is near enough to zero then inverse transform
operations might not carry enough precision to produce meaningful
results.
If this transform represents a uniform scale, as indicated by
the getType
method then the determinant also
represents the square of the uniform scale factor by which all of
the points are expanded from or contracted towards the origin.
If this transform represents a nonuniform scale or more general
transform then the determinant is not likely to represent a
value useful for any purpose other than determining if inverse
transforms are possible.
Mathematically, the determinant is calculated using the formula:

This operation is equivalent to the following sequence of calls:
setToTranslation(anchorx, anchory); // S3: final translation rotate(theta); // S2: rotate around anchor translate(anchorx, anchory); // S1: translate anchor to originThe matrix representing this transform becomes:
[ cos(theta) sin(theta) xx*cos+y*sin ] [ sin(theta) cos(theta) yx*siny*cos ] [ 0 0 1 ]Rotating by a positive angle theta rotates points on the positive X axis toward the positive Y axis. Note also the discussion of Handling 90Degree Rotations above.

AffineTransform
Tx
to
this AffineTransform
Cx in the most commonly useful
way to provide a new user space
that is mapped to the former user space by Tx
.
Cx is updated to perform the combined transformation.
Transforming a point p by the updated transform Cx' is
equivalent to first transforming p by Tx
and then
transforming the result by the original transform Cx like this:
Cx'(p) = Cx(Tx(p))
In matrix notation, if this transform Cx is
represented by the matrix [this] and Tx
is represented
by the matrix [Tx] then this method does the following:
[this] = [this] x [Tx]

AffineTransform
object representing the
inverse transformation.
The inverse transform Tx' of this transform Tx
maps coordinates transformed by Tx back
to their original coordinates.
In other words, Tx'(Tx(p)) = p = Tx(Tx'(p)).
If this transform maps all coordinates onto a point or a line
then it will not have an inverse, since coordinates that do
not lie on the destination point or line will not have an inverse
mapping.
The getDeterminant
method can be used to determine if this
transform has no inverse, in which case an exception will be
thrown if the createInverse
method is called.

transformation.
Note that this method does not take any precautions to
avoid problems caused by storing results into Point2D
objects that will be used as the source for calculations
further down the source array.
This method does guarantee that if a specified Point2D
object is both the source and destination for the same single point
transform operation then the results will not be stored until
the calculations are complete to avoid storing the results on
top of the operands.
If, however, the destination Point2D
object for one
operation is the same object as the source Point2D
object for another operation further down the source array then
the original coordinates in that point are overwritten before
they can be converted.
