public class Transform extends Resource
Instances of this class represent transformation matrices for points expressed as (x, y) pairs of floating point numbers.Application code must explicitly invoke the
Transform.dispose()
method to release the operating system resources managed by each instance when those instances are no longer required. Since:
 3.1
