How do I make an ellipse??? I have mange to do the circle code.
Anyone could show me?

Ellips
Area = p * a * b
import java.awt.geom.*;

/**
 * A circle that can be manipulated and that draws itself on a canvas.
 * 
 *
 */

public class Circle extends Shape
{
    private int diameter;
    
    /**
     * Create a new circle at default position with default color.
     */
    public Circle()
    {
        super(20, 60, "blue", false);
        diameter = 30;
    }
    

    /**
     * Change the size to the new size (in pixels). Size must be >= 0.
     */
    public void changeSize(int newDiameter)
    {
        erase();
        diameter = newDiameter;
        draw();
    }

    /**
     * Draw the circle with current specifications on screen.
     */
    protected void draw()
    {
        if(isVisible) {
            Canvas canvas = Canvas.getCanvas();
            canvas.draw(this, color, new Ellipse2D.Double(xPosition, yPosition, 
                                                          diameter, diameter));
            canvas.wait(10);
        }
    }

     /**
     * Get the area value of the circle.
     */
    public double getArea()
    {
        return Math.PI * diameter * diameter;
    }
        
}

in this line
canvas.draw(this, color, new Ellipse2D.Double(xPosition, yPosition,
                                                          diameter, diameter));

change to
canvas.draw(this, color, new Ellipse2D.Double(xPosition, yPosition,
                                                          diameter, diameter + 70));

If your parameters 3 and 4 are equal, it's a circle, otherwise if they are different it's a ellipse...

Actually circle is ellipse, a particular kind of ellipse, so you have to have 2 parameters :
diameterX and diameter Y
A proportion between them determine how will your ellipse will look like. If they are equal it's a circle.
so change the line to :
canvas.draw(this, color, new Ellipse2D.Double(xPosition, yPosition,
                                                          diameterX , diameterY));

so what you are saying. Use that line and exchange diameter to x and y.

So a copy of the circle?????? with the above included.

no, just create another class, for Ellipse, it similar to Circle, but it's good to have different classes for Circle and Ellipse. Here it is :

import java.awt.geom.*;

public class Ellipse extends Shape {
    private int diameterX, diameterY;
   
    /**
     * Create a new circle at default position with default color.
     */
    public Ellipse()
    {
        super(20, 60, "blue", false);
        diameterX = 30; diameterY = 30;
    }
   

    /**
     * Change the size to the new size (in pixels). Size must be >= 0.
     */
    public void changeSize(int diameterX, int diameterY)
    {
        erase();
        this.diameterX = diameterX; this.diameterY = diameterY;
        draw();
    }

    /**
     * Draw the circle with current specifications on screen.
     */
    protected void draw()
    {
        if(isVisible) {
            Canvas canvas = Canvas.getCanvas();
            canvas.draw(this, color, new Ellipse2D.Double(xPosition, yPosition, diameterX, diameterY));
            canvas.wait(10);
        }
    }

     /**
     * Get the area value of the circle.
     */
    public double getArea()
    {
        return Math.PI * diameterX * diameterY;
    }
       
}
