as the title suggests I want to program a 2D game in Java. I've already made a game for Android, so I have some basics down. However, I'm unsure how to display graphics efficiently on pc.


From what I've looked up so far, Java2D has come up a lot for painting on the canvas, and JFrame for creating the window. Are those any good? Are there any worthwhile alternatives I should know about?


Thanks in advance~
