public abstract class RectangularShape
RectangularShape
is the base class for a number of
Shape
objects whose geometry is defined by a rectangular frame.
This class does not directly specify any specific geometry by
itself, but merely provides manipulation methods inherited by
a whole category of Shape
objects.
The manipulation methods provided by this class can be used to
query and modify the rectangular frame, which provides a reference
for the subclasses to define their geometry.

Shape
intersects the
interior of a specified Rectangle2D

The Shape.intersects()
method allows a Shape
implementation to conservatively return true
when:
Rectangle2D
and the
Shape
intersect, but
Shapes
this method might
return true
even though the Rectangle2D
does not
intersect the Shape

The Area
class performs
more accurate computations of geometric intersection than most
Shape
objects and therefore can be used if a more precise
answer is required.

public Rectangle getBounds()
Rectangle
that completely encloses the
Shape
. Note that there is no guarantee that the
returned Rectangle
is the smallest bounding box that
encloses the Shape
, only that the Shape
lies entirely within the indicated Rectangle
. The
returned Rectangle
might also fail to completely
enclose the Shape
if the Shape
overflows
the limited range of the integer data type. The
getBounds2D
method generally returns a
tighter bounding box due to its greater flexibility in
representation.

object's boundary and provides access to a
flattened view of the outline of the Shape
object's geometry.
Only SEG_MOVETO, SEG_LINETO, and SEG_CLOSE point types will be returned by the iterator.
The amount of subdivision of the curved segments is controlled
by the flatness
parameter, which specifies the
maximum distance that any point on the unflattened transformed
curve can deviate from the returned flattened path segments.
An optional AffineTransform
can
be specified so that the coordinates returned in the iteration are
transformed accordingly.
