Graphics.clipRect() question

Quote from Visual J++ documentation for Graphics.clipRect():

clipRect(int  x, int  y, int  width, int  height)

Sets a clipping rectangle for this graphics context. The resulting clipping area is the intersection of the current clipping area and the specified rectangle.

[end of quote]
If the above is true, then it means once you set a clipping area, you cannot make it bigger, only smaller.  Is there a way to reset the clipping area of an existing Graphics object ?

Under jdk 1.02, you have to .create() a new Graphics for the smaller
area and dispose it when you need to paint a larger region (and go back
and use the not-so-clipped Graphics), because there is no way to make it
larger.

Under jdk 1.1, you can use setClip, which unlike clipRect, does not
intersect the specified bounds (or shape) with the previous bounds, so
you can use it to expand the region as well as contracting it.
