Java's formatting capabilities

Is there any easier way of understanding how the numerous ways of formatting in java are related? I get confused of the following:



Are the above classes/methods related in anyway? What is the best way to understand the differences and which to use in which situation?

As an example, System.out.printf, System.out.format and String.format all use the same syntax and format flags. I cant see what the difference is in all three of them.

Thanks
