I want to do some reading on the "behind the scenes mechanics" of painting in AWT & Swing, and this article by Amy Fowler seems to be just what the doctor ordered. Give that it is over six years old, I was wondering if someone in the know can speak to the current relevance of the information contained herein.

Thank you.

I refer people to that link all the time. I'm not aware of anything that has changed that would make the information wrong.

I also refer people to the "Custom Painting" section from the Swing tutorial for a higher level look at painting.
