Before getting started on creating points that are animated like this using flash I would like to know if it is possible in anyway to create animated point using openlayers and geoserver. If it is what are the different ways? I saw this example.

The Openlayers documentation refers to a tween function that will fire off a function every so often

Perhaps having it fire on the mouse over function and animate a circle growing around your point? I don't see why it wouldn't be possible...
