    Default [SOLVED]Having trouble with Rectangle2d

    Hello, Gravity Games here! Recently, I've been playing apps on my new Android Galaxy Player, and have been having a lot of fun, which motivated me to start developing android apps. Apparently, android apps are coded in Java, so I made the decision o finally move up from game maker and start using Java. I was following a YouTube tutorial in Java game coding, and everything was going swell, until I got to the point of rendering a rectangle. Here's the code I have in the file that's giving me trouble.

    package main.cww.gravitygames;
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D;
    import javax.swing.*;
    public class Ac extends JPanel{
    	public int characterWidth=12;
    	public int characterHeight=20;
    	public Rectangle character;
    	public boolean objectsDefined=false;
    	public Ac() {
        public void defineObjects() {
        	character = new Rectangle((Aa.width/2) - (characterWidth/2), (Aa.height/2) - (characterHeight/2), characterWidth, characterHeight);
    	public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
            		g.fillRect(character.x, character.y, character.width, character.height);

    Help is REALLY appreciated, I've been trying 2 days to fix this but to no avail.

    EDIT: ...okay? I had originally used Rectangle, but I changed it to Rectangle2d at the request of Eclipse, then I hover over Rectangle2d and it requests a change to Rectangle. When I tried running it again, it somehow worked... is it just me, or is Eclipse just weird sometimes?...
