I really need it to draw with double numbers

Pixels are discrete points. You can only paint at integer coordinates.

Per the documentation: Graphics class

Yeah. I don't get that, because you can draw Strings with

What's up with that?

drawString(String s, float x, float y);

What's up with that?

Maybe I'm just blind, but according to the documentation I linked to, I only saw a drawString() method with int parameters. Why is it so important to be able to use floating point numbers anyways?

Unless you have noted these methods (both in Graphics and Graphics2D) are abstract because you want an universal way to address a Graphic Card that can work (you don't know) with pixels or double coordinates. So they just delegate to the native code of the Graphic Card.

An affine transform will require double, a drawSring will need it to compute, based on the Font characteristics if the actual drawing will start at pixel: X,Y or X+1,Y or X,Y+1 or X+1,Y+1 based on certain rounding algorithm
