I have a small paint method problem, Ive just started working with it, Here is the code I have, Im trying to get a line to be drawn is all,

public void paint(Graphics g) {
Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D)g;
g2.drawLine(20,150,100,230);
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
JFrame f= new JFrame();
f.setSize(400,400);
f.setLocaton(300,300);
f.setContentPane().add(new Draw());
f.setVisible(true);
do I need to make a call to it in the main method or what? Im kinda lost and I know the answer is simple but I cant see it thanks

If you look up the paint method in the JComponent api it will explain what it does and how it relates to paintComponent.
