I have a book by Sun called "2D API Graphics" that uses the "Java 2D API" is this now redundant or a completly different area than AWT/Swing etc?

"Tom Baker 2001",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

Tom,
The Java 2D API is part of the JFC( Java Foundation Classes )... it was created to add more graphics manipulation than the old AWT Graphics class could provide. Swing is the GUI aspect of JFC, built to replace/upgrade the AWT... so Graphics 2D is kinda related to this topic... Swing may be displayed using the Graphics2D class instead of the Graphics class, but I am not sure about this...
HTH,
-Nate
