Animations on eSWT applications using SAT

SWT Animation Toolkit (SAT) is more or less the only option that I am aware, for SWT animations until Eclipse E4 starts to provide animations for SWT. eSWT also has the plans to adopt the SWT animations API to embedded. However, in order to see what is available today, I have played with the SAT to get it working on the S60 eSWT implementation. It turns out, it is a pretty painless effort to get SAT working on the mobile phones. If your animation needs can not wait for eSWT to pick the animations API from E4, SAT actually provides an option.  As customary, here is a screencast of a couple of SAT animations on S60 eSWT for your viewing pleasure.
