public final class Rectangle
Instances of this class represent rectangular areas in an (x, y) coordinate system. The top left corner of the rectangle is specified by its x and y values, and the extent of the rectangle is specified by its width and height.
The coordinate space for rectangles and points is considered to have increasing values downward and to the right from its origin making this the normal, computer graphics oriented notion of (x, y) coordinates rather than the strict mathematical one.
The hashCode() method in this class uses the values of the public fields to compute the hash value. When storing instances of the class in hashed collections, do not modify these fields after the object has been inserted.
Application code does not need to explicitly release the
resources managed by each instance when those instances are no longer
required, and thus no dispose()
method is provided.

Constructor Summary  

Rectangle(int x,
int y,

Construct a new instance of this class given the x, y, width and height values. 
Method Summary  

void 
add(Rectangle rect)
Destructively replaces the x, y, width and height values in the receiver with ones which represent the union of the rectangles specified by the receiver and the given rectangle. 
boolean 
contains(int x,
int y)
Returns true if the point specified by the
arguments is inside the area specified by the receiver,
and false otherwise. 
boolean 
contains(Point pt)
Returns true if the given point is inside the
area specified by the receiver, and false
otherwise. 
boolean 
equals(Object object)
Compares the argument to the receiver, and returns true if they represent the same object using a class specific comparison. 
int 
hashCode()
Returns an integer hash code for the receiver. 
void 
intersect(Rectangle rect)
Destructively replaces the x, y, width and height values in the receiver with ones which represent the intersection of the rectangles specified by the receiver and the given rectangle. 
Rectangle 
intersection(Rectangle rect)
Returns a new rectangle which represents the intersection of the receiver and the given rectangle. 
boolean 
intersects(int x,
int y,
int width,
int height)
Returns true if the rectangle described by the
arguments intersects with the receiver and false
otherwise. 
boolean 
intersects(Rectangle rect)
Returns true if the given rectangle intersects
with the receiver and false otherwise. 
boolean 
isEmpty()
Returns true if the receiver does not cover any
area in the (x, y) coordinate plane, and false if
the receiver does cover some area in the plane. 
String 
toString()
Returns a string containing a concise, humanreadable description of the receiver. 
Rectangle 
union(Rectangle rect)
Returns a new rectangle which represents the union of the receiver and the given rectangle.
