When doing a painting in a JPanel, why we override paintComponent(Graphics g) method other than paint(Graphics g) method..??
What will happen if paint method has overriden...?

JComponent paints border and inner components in it's paint method. If you override paint method in a JComponent then some content may appear to be missing.
Also read the
Painting in AWT and Swing
article. It describes when and which methods are called (including paint and paintComponent).

Swing is different from AWT when it comes to painting.
You can also look at the Swing tutorial on
for an explanation and painting examples.
I agree. Here's the link:
