I am new to Java and I am coding a small drawing application for learning purpose.
My question is simple: how can I draw in Java. For example, I have some icons. Whenever I click one icon, if I click on the drawing area (how to define a drawing area?), then a figure represented by the icon will be put on the drawing area. I can move, scale, delete the figure. Just like any drawing program.

Thanks.

(Demo code will be appreciated)

I know the existence of this tutorial and it is not what I want here at EE. Were it what I wanted, I would not ask here in EE.

Tks anyway.

You need to understand the basics of drawing first and then come up with some code of your own so that we can help you with it. We cannot post complete working code otherwise.
