    Default Painted component won't show up

    Hello, I wonder why my oval doesn't show up on the frame.


    Class with the oval

    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
     
     
    public class character extends JPanel
    {
     
        public character ()         
        {
            this.setBackground(Color.cyan);
     
        }
     
        @Override
        public void paintComponent(Graphics g)
        {
            super.paintComponents(g);
            g.setColor(Color.red);
            g.fillOval(67, 150, 100, 100);       
     
        }
     
    }

    Class supposed to show oval

    import java.awt.Color;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
     
     
    public class spelplan extends JPanel
    {
     
        character player1;
     
        public spelplan()
        {
     
            player1 = new character();
            this.setBackground(Color.white);
            add(player1);
        }
     
        public static void main(String[] args) 
        {
            JFrame f = new JFrame();
            f.setSize(500,500);
            f.setLocation(200,200);
            f.setTitle("RogueTest");
            f.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
            spelplan p = new spelplan();
            f.add(p);
            f.setVisible(true);
        }
     
     
    }//class

    I'm sure there is a simple solution but I can't see whats wrong. I even checked in my java-book and I can't find it out O.o

    Some suggestions:
    Add a getPreferredSize() method to the panel.
    Play with the values in the fillOval() method.

    Change class names to start with Cap letter and not conflict with Java class names.
