How do I draw a round rectangle in Java 2D?

The RoundRectangle2D class defines a rectangle with rounded corners defined by a location (x,y), dimension (w x h), and the width and height of an arc with which to round the corners.

The RoundRectangle2D.Double class constructs a RoundRectangle2D from the specified values in double, including the location, width and the arch of the round rectangle.

package org.kodejava.example.awt.geom;

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.geom.RoundRectangle2D;

public class DrawRoundRectangle extends JApplet {
    public void paint(Graphics g) {
        Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D) g;
        g2.setStroke(new BasicStroke(2.0f));
        double x = 50;
        double y = 50;
        double w = x + 250;
        double h = y + 100;
        g2.draw(new RoundRectangle2D.Double(x, y, w, h, 50, 50));

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        JFrame frame = new JFrame();
        JApplet applet = new DrawRoundRectangle();
        frame.getContentPane().add(applet, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        frame.setSize(400, 300);

Here is the result you’ll get when you run the snippet:
