    Question My program won't recognize the mouse's motions~

    I have a mediocre knowledge of Java (I know the fundamentals) and have been watching a youtube series to learn how to program games better. The video, Java Game Programming for Beginners - #10 - More Collision Detection - YouTube, is about collision detection, but for some reason with the code I have here, the rectangle won't even follow the mouse. Side note: Any favorite youtube channels for Java would be much appreciated as well.

    package collision;

    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.MouseAdapter;
    import java.awt.event.MouseEvent;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;

    public class Main extends JFrame {

    private Image dbImage;
    private Graphics dbg;

    int rectX, rectY;

    public Main(){
    addMouseMotionListener(new AL());

    public void paint(Graphics g){
    dbImage = createImage(getWidth(), getHeight());
    dbg = dbImage.getGraphics();
    g.drawImage(dbImage, 0, 0, this);
    public void paintComponent(Graphics g){
    Rectangle r1 = new Rectangle(rectX, rectY, 25, 25);
    Rectangle r2 = new Rectangle(175, 175, 50, 50);
    g.fillRect(r2.x, r2.y, r2.width, r2.height);
    g.fillRect(r1.x, r1.y, r1.width, r1.height);


    public class AL extends MouseAdapter {
    public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent e){
    rectX = e.getX()-12;
    rectY = e.getY()-12;

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    Main main = new Main();

    False Alarm. I forgot to repaint. Anyone know how to delete a thread?
