It is a class used for convenience, i.e. it simplifies some other more complex task.

Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

A "convenience method" or "convenience class" generally means a class that doesn't do anything itself, but provides simplified access to other classes or groups of classes. For example, the "random()" method in java.lang.Math is a convenience method that provides a simple way to use the more powerful java.util.Random class.
