iOS: simple animation

I want to create a simple animation changing alpha value:

[UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
[UIView setAnimationDuration:2];
[view1 setAlpha:0.00];
[UIView commitAnimations];


Ok in this way I change the alpha value for two seconds and it works fine, but I want this thing:
When alpha is 0 the animation must should start another time to alpha = 1
So the animation should be: alpha 0 -> alpha 1 -> alpha 0 -> alpha 1 -> ... and so on with a duration of two seconds.
Can you help me?

my complete code is

-(IBAction){
FirstViewController *firstViewController = [[[FirstViewController alloc] init]autorelease];
[firstViewController.label1 setAlpha:1.00];
[firstViewController.label2 setAlpha:1.00];
view = firstViewController.viewFirst; //this is my view and I copy in other view
[self fadeOut:nil finished:nil context:nil];}

- (void) fadeOut:(NSString *)animationID finished:(NSNumber *)finished context:(void *)context {


[UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
[UIView setAnimationDuration:2];
[UIView setAnimationDelegate:self];
[UIView setAnimationDidStopSelector:@selector(fadeIn:finished:context:) ];
[view setAlpha:0.00];
[UIView commitAnimations];
}

- (void) fadeIn:(NSString *)animationID finished:(NSNumber *)finished context:(void *)context {
[UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
[UIView setAnimationDuration:2];
[UIView setAnimationDelegate:self];
[UIView setAnimationDidStopSelector:@selector(fadeOut:finished:context:) ];
[view setAlpha:1.00];
[UIView commitAnimations];
}

Answer
- (void) fadeOut:(NSString *)animationID finished:(NSNumber *)finished context:(void *)context {
    [UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
    [UIView setAnimationDuration:2];
    [UIView  setAnimationDelegate:self];
    if(animationRunning){
        [UIView setAnimationDidStopSelector:@selector(fadeIn:finished:context:) ];
    }
    [view1 setAlpha:0.00];
    [UIView commitAnimations];
}

- (void) fadeIn:(NSString *)animationID finished:(NSNumber *)finished context:(void *)context {
    [UIView beginAnimations:nil context:NULL];
    [UIView setAnimationDuration:2];
    [UIView  setAnimationDelegate:self];
    if(animationRunning){
        [UIView setAnimationDidStopSelector:@selector(fadeOut:finished:context:) ];
    }
    [view1 setAlpha:1.00];
    [UIView commitAnimations];
}

These will call each other on the end of the animation...

All you need to do to start the ball rolling is call:

[self fadeOut:nil finished:nil context:nil];
