Methods Summary 

public boolean  contains(double x, double y)Tests if the specified coordinates are inside the boundary of the
Shape .

public boolean  contains(java.awt.geom.Point2D p)Tests if a specified {@link Point2D} is inside the boundary
of the Shape .

public boolean  contains(double x, double y, double w, double h)Tests if the interior of the Shape entirely contains
the specified rectangular area. All coordinates that lie inside
the rectangular area must lie within the Shape for the
entire rectanglar area to be considered contained within the
Shape .
This method might conservatively return false when:

the
intersect method returns true and

the calculations to determine whether or not the
Shape entirely contains the rectangular area are
prohibitively expensive.
This means that this method might return false even
though the Shape contains the rectangular area.
The Area class can be used to perform more accurate
computations of geometric intersection for any Shape
object if a more precise answer is required.

public boolean  contains(java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D r)Tests if the interior of the Shape entirely contains the
specified Rectangle2D .
This method might conservatively return false when:

the
intersect method returns true and

the calculations to determine whether or not the
Shape entirely contains the Rectangle2D
are prohibitively expensive.
This means that this method might return false even
though the Shape contains the
Rectangle2D .
The Area class can be used to perform more accurate
computations of geometric intersection for any Shape
object if a more precise answer is required.

public java.awt.Rectangle  getBounds()Returns an integer {@link 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.

public java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D  getBounds2D()Returns a high precision and more accurate bounding box of
the Shape than the getBounds method.
Note that there is no guarantee that the returned
{@link Rectangle2D} is the smallest bounding box that encloses
the Shape , only that the Shape lies
entirely within the indicated Rectangle2D . The
bounding box returned by this method is usually tighter than that
returned by the getBounds method and never fails due
to overflow problems since the return value can be an instance of
the Rectangle2D that uses double precision values to
store the dimensions.

public java.awt.geom.PathIterator  getPathIterator(java.awt.geom.AffineTransform at, double flatness)Returns an iterator object that iterates along the Shape
boundary and provides access to a flattened view of the
Shape outline geometry.
Only SEG_MOVETO, SEG_LINETO, and SEG_CLOSE point types are
returned by the iterator.
If an optional AffineTransform is specified,
the coordinates returned in the iteration are transformed
accordingly.
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.
Note that a limit on the accuracy of the flattened path might be
silently imposed, causing very small flattening parameters to be
treated as larger values. This limit, if there is one, is
defined by the particular implementation that is used.
Each call to this method returns a fresh PathIterator
object that traverses the Shape object geometry
independently from any other PathIterator objects in use at
the same time.
It is recommended, but not guaranteed, that objects
implementing the Shape interface isolate iterations
that are in process from any changes that might occur to the original
object's geometry during such iterations.
Before using a particular implementation of this interface in more
than one thread simultaneously, refer to its documentation to
verify that it guarantees that iterations are isolated from
modifications.

public boolean  intersects(double x, double y, double w, double h)Tests if the interior of the Shape intersects the
interior of a specified rectangular area.
The rectangular area is considered to intersect the Shape
if any point is contained in both the interior of the
Shape and the specified rectangular area.
This method might conservatively return true when:

there is a high probability that the rectangular area and the
Shape intersect, but

the calculations to accurately determine this intersection
are prohibitively expensive.
This means that this method might return true even
though the rectangular area does not intersect the Shape .
The {@link java.awt.geom.Area Area} class can be used to perform
more accurate computations of geometric intersection for any
Shape object if a more precise answer is required.

public boolean  intersects(java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D r)Tests if the interior of the Shape intersects the
interior of a specified Rectangle2D .
This method might conservatively return true when:

there is a high probability that the
Rectangle2D and the
Shape intersect, but

the calculations to accurately determine this intersection
are prohibitively expensive.
This means that this method might return true even
though the Rectangle2D does not intersect the
Shape .
