JComponent : Java Glossary


name of a class that contains methods common to all Swing components such as paintImmediately and paintComponent. The AWT (Advanced Windowing Toolkit) equivalent is called Component.

JComponent has a surprising ancestry. It inherits not from Component, but from Container, which in turn inherits from Component.
