8241582: Infinite animation does not start from the end when started with a negative rate #169


Copy link

@nlisker nlisker commented Apr 10, 2020


Animation#jumpTo(Duration) does not handle Duration.INDEFINITE properly. This causes InfiniteClipEnvelope#jumpTo(long) to receive an erroneous value and start the animation not from the end, depending on the modulo calculation.


For infinite cycles, use the cycleDuration as the destination since that is the effective end point.


  • Added an testJumpTo_IndefiniteCycles test that fails without the patch and passes after it.
  • Added a testJumpTo_IndefiniteCycleDuration that passes both before and after, just to make sure that this type of infinite duration is correct.
  • Removed a test in SequentialTransition that fails with this patch, but it passed before it only because the modulo value happened to land in the right place. Changing the duration of one of the child animation can cause it to fail, so the test is faulty anyway at this stage.

Future work

Playing backwards will still not work correctly, but at least now it start from the correct value. This is the first of a series of fixes under the umbrella issue JDK-8210238.

Looks good. I left a question about one of the tests (for my own curiosity), but I'm approving it anyway.


assertEquals(Duration.millis(Long.MAX_VALUE / 6), animation.getCurrentTime());

This is a good question and I think I should have explained it in a comment because it also points to a mini-flaw. The short answer is that the 6 comes from the TicksCalculation class, which defines TICKS_PER_SECOND = 6000 and TICKS_PER_MILI = TICKS_PER_SECOND / 1000.0 which is 6.

The test works as follows:

This is the "ticks from duration" calculation for jumping to the end (Duration.INDEFINITE), demonstrated by mathematical substitutions:

double millis = Duration.INDEFINITE.toMillis() = Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
long ticks = TickCalculation.fromMillis(millis) = Math.round(TICKS_PER_MILI * millis)
        = Math.round(6 * Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY) = Math.round(Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY) 
        = Long.MAX_VALUE (as per the spec. of Math.round)

Notice that we lose precision when multiplying POSITIVE_INFINITY.

Then getting the current time calculates "duration from ticks":

animation.getCurrentTime() = TickCalculation.toDuration(currentTicks)
        = ticks / TICKS_PER_MILI = Long.MAX_VALUE / 6

So the division carries out normally (there's no Long.POSITIVE_INFINITY), but the multiplication does not.

Maybe we shouldn't convert between the double-based Duration and the long ticks so much, but I think that this is somewhat negligible.

My next patch is refactoring in preparation of the next, heavier, changes, so I will add this explanation on the test.
