JAVA 2D Graphic

JAVA 2D Graphic

JAVA 2D Graphic

Hi all,

I need to create a 2D object. I want it to be able to:

-move it around the screen by mouse click.
-Place arbitrary number of Connectors on it.
-Connect other objects to it so that they lock together. (Very much like VISIO)
-Group them together (So that they can move together)
-Assign to a software module  
-zoom in and out. Though it's not absolutely necessary.
-I think it should be Vector Graphics.

I would prefer JAVA but I can also use VB.

I need to know where and how to start.
Is there any sample code, that I can start with?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
