+Contains all of the classes for creating user
+interfaces and for painting graphics and images. A user interface object such as a button or a
+scrollbar is called, in AWT terminology, a component. The Component class is the root of all
+AWT components. See Component for a detailed description of properties that all AWT 
+components share.
+<p>
+Some components fire events when a user interacts with the components. The AWTEvent
+class and its subclasses are used to represent the events that AWT components can fire. See
+AWTEvent for a description of the AWT event model.
+<p>
+A container is a component that can contain components and other containers. A con
+tainer can also have a layout manager that controls the visual placement of components in the
+container. The AWT package contains several layout manager classes and an interface for
+building your own layout manager. See Container and LayoutManager for more information.
+<p>
+Each {@code Component} object is limited in its maximum size and
+its location because the values are stored as an integer.
+Also, a platform may further restrict maximum size and location
+coordinates. The exact maximum values are dependent on the platform.
+There is no way to change these maximum values, either in Java
+code or in native code.
+These limitations also impose restrictions on component layout.
+If the bounds of a Component object exceed a platform limit,
+there is no way to properly arrange them within a Container object.
+The object's bounds are defined by any object's coordinate
+in combination with its size on a respective axis.
